Your continued support is hugely appreciated by ourselves, and the families of all babies with congenital heart defects.
The money you have donated will be used to support our vital programmes, working to improve detection rates, care and treatment of congenital heart defects in babies. Although great strides have been made in detecting heart problems, the national detection rate still only sits at 47%, so there is far more that needs to be done. Sadly, heart defects are still one of the biggest killers in babies under 1, being responsible for 1 in 13 infant deaths. We are determined to improve this statistic.
We have also welcomed a new Head of Training, Anne Rhodes, back in January. As a specialist sonographer with a focus on fetal cardiac scanning, Anne is responsible for overseeing our core activity of training sonographers who deliver antenatal screening. We're delighted with the amount of training we've been abe to provide and we've enjoyed excellent feedback from the hundreds of dedicated and passionate sonographers that we've met around the UK. We will be training our 1000th sonographer in June this year which is a fantastic achievement for such a small charity.
