Back to school...for our sonographers!

We have entered a new chapter for Tiny Tickers with the start of our new regional training model for sonographers and health professionals. Kicking off with a conference in July 2015 for 50 sonographers across Yorkshire, this model will allow us to train 200 sonographers this year across Yorkshire and the Humber to be better able to detect heart condition during pregnancy scans. 

We hope, subject to funding, to be able to roll this model out to two other regions/nations in 2016. 

With national prenatal detection rates currently at 47% (they have doubled since Tiny Tickers began training in 1999), our aim is to get to 80% detection rates across the UK. At present, there is significant variation from region to region, with Merseyside's detection rates being only 26.9%. Our vision is that every baby born with a serious heart condition will be given a fighting chance, wherever they are born in the UK.  

With 1,000 newborns in the UK sent home every year with an undetected heart condition, there is much we need to do. Your support plays a vital role in ensuring our work is as effective as possible. Thank you.
