Tiny Tickers Appoints New Chair of Trustees

We are pleased to announce that we have now appointed a new Chair of Trustees, Paul Schofield, who will be taking us into the next exciting chapter for Tiny Tickers, and leading us into our 20th year.

The Difference We Are Making for Tiny Hearts…

Tiny Tickers is the only UK charity working to improve prenatal detection rates of heart conditions in babies. Our work delivers real life-saving results to heart babies, their families, and the health professionals that look after them.

Tiny Tickers Trains Our 1000th Sonographer

We’ve achieved a major milestone in our mission to detect heart defects in babies BEFORE they are born. On 5th July in the Royal United Hospital Bath, we trained our 1000th sonographer since 2016, to spot heart defects whilst carrying out routine 20 week pregnancy scans.

A Successful Heart Week!

Thank you to everyone who took part in Heart Week this year!  So many of you organised fundraising events to raise vital funds and awareness for heart babies. We had tea parties, bake sales and even popcorn and movies at work (thank you Star Media!)

We’ve Trained Almost 1000 Sonographers Since 2016

At Tiny Tickers, our mission is to train as many sonographers as possible, as regularly as possible. The biggest single factor in increasing detection rates of Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is sonographer training and so we’re proud to reveal that, since 2016, we have trained 967 sonographers throughout the UK.
