Catch up on the all the news from our department and staff.
More than 20 years ago, the Cardiac Research Team took part in the British Heart Foundation London to Brighton Bike ride. This year, two of the original team are cycling 46 miles in the Prudential MyRide London challenge.
We are the first team within the Trust to get the green light to restart their research that was paused during lockdown. We put in place many different safety measures to ensure that this is done safely.
We have always taken hygiene very seriously in the department. We are aware that some people have concerns when attending hospitals. This has now been stepped up to a higher level to ensure you can attend the department safely and confidently.
The Ischemia Trial is one of the most important recent trials. More than 200 patients were recruited into this trial at Northwick Park, which was the second highest recruitment site in the world, and the team attended the results presentation at the American Heart Association Conference in Philadelphia in November 2019. A summary of the the results of the trial are available on the Ischemia Trial website: https://www.ischemiatrial.org/ischemia-study-results.
