Boost for 3D heart-modelling project

Funds being raised for a printing program that will allow surgeons in Hampshire to create 3D models of patients’ hearts has been given boost — thanks to an award-winning Southampton finance company.


Liberty Leasing has donated £2,000 towards Wessex Heartbeat’s appeal to raise vital funds for the programme which will help patients at the Wessex Cardiac Centre in Southampton General Hospital.

The donation was given at the Remedy Oak Golf day in Bournemouth after Mr Nicola Viola, Congenital Cardiac Surgeon at Southampton General Hospital, gave an insight into the important project.


Costing £130,000 for the specialist software and training, the pioneering new equipment will allow surgeons to get an accurate 3D printed model of their patient’s heart before surgery and will be particularly useful for children and babies living with cardiac problems.


John Munro, chief executive at Wessex Heartbeat, said: “We are extremely thankful to Liberty Leasing for this fantastic donation. The project will make a huge difference to those suffering from serious heart conditions in the area.”


Allan Clegg, Managing Director of Liberty Leasing, said: “We have been loyal supporters of Wessex Heartbeat over many years and are delighted to be able to donate to this worthy cause.”
