The Evelina London Paediatric Cardiology Team are running a monthly group for parents of children with a heart condition. The group aims to provide a safe space for parents to share experiences and ideas with one another around supporting their child and family’s emotional well-being. The following topics will be covered:
Group 1: Tuesday 25th May 2021: – 10.00 – 11.00
– Talking to your child about their heart condition and/or treatment
Group 2: Tuesday 29th June 2021 – 10.00 -11.00
– Supporting siblings
Group 3: Tuesday 20th July – 10.00 – 11.00
The group will be led by Dr Niki Gregg (Clinical Psychologist), Sherrida Rollins (Cardiac Clinical Nurse Specialist) and Samantha Johnson (Chief Executive at ECHO).
All parents/carers of children under the care of an Evelina Consultant Cardiologist are welcome.
This group is for parents and carers only. We appreciate you may need to have children who are not at school or nursery present in the background. This is fine. We just ask that you be mindful of what they may overhear and turn off your camera if you prefer they do not appear on screen.
Please note, you do not need to attend every group. We will need you to complete a referral form with details of you and your child for our records. Once we have received this form, you can drop in to whichever groups feel most helpful for you.
If you would like to attend or would like any further information about the group please complete a referral form and email it to the psychology team.
If you have any questions or need help completing the form, please email Safa.
Please note, if your child has neurodevelopmental and/or learning difficulties, you may prefer to attend the two 3 hour groups that will run in November/December 2021. These will focus specifically on supporting children and young people with additional needs. Please email us if you would like to join the waiting list.
We hope to see you there!
