Shared Care

Shared Care Services with Sheffield PVDU

Shared care provides potential benefits of reduced patient travel while maintaining expert PH management. Sheffield PVDU currently has formalised shared care with 4 adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) centres: Birmingham, Leeds, Leicester and Manchester.

Patients with certain forms of PH associated with ACHD may be suitable for this arrangement. Other forms of PH require more complex management and therefore need to continue to be followed up in Sheffield.
