Standards of quality

We are compliant with all contemporary government performance indicators (e.g. door-needle times and achievement of the 2-week wait for RACPC etc.) We are also an early achiever for the full NHS18-week pathway target.

We undertake a large number of prospective full service audits (e.g. in pacemaker/ICD implantation, rehabilitation, arrhythmia management, heart failure and echo services) and contribute to National data for the Myocardial Ischaemia National Audit Project (MINAP) and Coronary Artery Disease audits (CAD).

As an example of our service quality our outcome data for angiography and angioplasty services compare very favourably with National outcome averages both in terms of efficancy (success rates significantly higher than average) and safety (complication rates much lower than average).
