Patients can expect receive on-going care and support from clinicians to help manage their heart condition.
A third of cardiology patients arrive through the Trust’s accident and emergency department. Emergency care is given to patients following a heart attack or other heart-related conditions. Following admission inpatients receive comprehensive and specialist care on our hospital wards.
Rehabilitation is a crucial part of living with a heart condition and specialist nurses at the Trust work with patients to get them back on their feet. The cardiac rehabilitation team provide a long-term programme and on-going support to cardiac patients after they have been discharged.
The cardiology department offer invasive and non-invasive diagnostic procedures. Other treatments and procedures include:
- Pacemaker fittings
- Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)
