Patients are at the heart of everything we do and so is staff well-being.

In addition to weekly MDT meetings with Consultants, physiologists hold biannual meetings in person, our last one included an educational and interactive talk on global longitudinal strain. We often meet up on social events and are proud to say we recently achieved completion of the National Three Peaks challenge in order to raise money for Calon Hearts.
