We admit both cardiology and general medical patients from a catchment area of approx. 400 000.

 

Patients can be:

  • Referred by their general practitioner (GP).

  • Admitted via Accident & Emergency.

  • Fast-tracked by paramedic crews.

  • Directly admitted to the CCU.

Most patients who stay as inpatients have:

  • Myocardial infarctions (heart attacks).

  • Unstable angina.

  • Cardiac arrhythmias.

  • Cardiac failure.

 

We have facilities for cardiology tests (including invasive monitoring), and can provide temporary cardiac pacemakers. Our treatment pathways aim to meet all national service framework targets, and we have strong links with Papworth Hospital, which provides our interventional facilities.

 

In addition, we run day-surgery cardioversion lists and heart-failure clinics. and hold sessions for Heartbeat and Heartstart in Cambridge, which are national British Heart Foundation (BHF) groups.

 

The Centre has become a nursing development unit, and we invest highly in staff development and meet clinical governance needs by providing evidence-based care.
