Cardiovascular Disease Programme Update - Spring 2018
Over the last few months the Cardiovascular Programme team have continued to work with our colleagues across Cheshire & Merseyside.
We have held a number of events and working groups to explore what the best models of care should be for patients who suffer from cardiovascular disease.
In particular, we have been successful in setting up a working group which includes stakeholders from NHS providers, commissioning groups and ambulance service, to develop the best pathway for the management of Acute Coronary Syndromes. The group has been meeting monthly since November.
A workshop on the same theme was held on the 1st February in Liverpool with partners from across the region. The event has served to confirm that all partners have the same view of what the service model should look like: a central Heart Attack centre in the region. Further work is taking place to explore the details.
We will keep bringing you updates every quarter as the work progresses.
