Our mission is to provide emotional and financial support to families making use of the facilities on Ocean Ward. Our aim is to help bridge the gap between home and hospital by putting families in touch with others whose child has a similar condition and experiences similar problems and issues. This is especially important as the paediatric cardiac unit in Southampton treats children not only in the local area but also heart children as far down as Devon, Cornwall, across to West Sussex and Wiltshire. Due to the recently formed Southampton / Oxford network, Ocean Ward now treats patients previously treated at the John Radcliffe Hospital and from the Oxfordshire area.
