Cardiology

"I believe that there are huge benefits for the NHS in finding innovative methods of delivering services, continually striving to be more efficient without comprising on quality of care.

Community Outpatients are working tirelessly towards this and I have found it very refreshing to be a part of this new attitude towards healthcare. I am excited to continue our work together, further discovering state of the art technology and new approaches to continually improve the patient experience."

Dr Jonathan Byrne MB ChB PhD MRCP, Medical Director

I would just like to say how appreciative I am of the service that I have received. The consultant was brilliant. A very pleasant and thorough doctor. He described what was wrong with me in terms that I could easily understand. I am very pleased with the service and attention given to me.
