The emergency heart attack treatment service at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital is 10 years old.

In January 2009, Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital launched a Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PPCI) service to treat emergency heart attack patients.

10 years on, thousands of patients and their families from Merseyside, Cheshire and beyond have been impacted thanks to the expertise of our team and the emergency treatment they received. 

BBC Radio Merseyside breakfast presenter Tony Snell, spoke to Professor Rod Stables, Consultant Cardiologist, about the success of the service on Thursday 24th January 2019.
