Main duties of the job

The Consultant Cardiologist team provide both an acute and elective cardiology service. They cover the Coronary Care Unit during the weekdays, conducting a coronary care ward round on weekday mornings at 08.30 hrs. They also provide cardiology input as requested for patients admitted by the physicians and assume ongoing responsibility for those needing intervention and other specialist input. They look after cardiology in-patients undertaking further diagnostic and therapeutic intervention. There are close links with the cardiology service at Leeds. Non- invasive diagnostic services are provided by the cardiac technical staff who also run the pacing clinic. Rapid access chest pain referrals are integrated into the outpatient cardiology clinics that operate on a comprehensive one stop principle. Facilities for CT coronary angiography and trans-oesophageal echocardiography and stress echocardiography are already well developed.
