Sheffield cardiologists plays a leading role in new international cardiology textbook

Sheffield cardiologists are among the world leading contributors in the making of a major new cardiology textbook highlighting developments in the field.

Based at the Northern General Hospital`s South Yorkshire Cardiothoracic Centre, it is the largest contribution of any other centre in the world.

Out of the 49-chapters of “Practical Interventional Cardiology” 14 chapters have been written by Sheffield cardiologists.

It was launched at the European Society of Cardiology`s annual congress in Barcelona in August.

Interventional cardiology procedures can treat heart diseases by using thin, hollow, flexible catheters instead of open heart surgery – reducing the pain and recovery time.

The comprehensive book, which was last updated 15 years ago, was edited and led by Dr Ever Grech, Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Dr Grech said: “Interventional cardiology is a rapidly changing field, so I am delighted that many of my colleagues have played such a prominent role in advancing interventional Cardiology techniques and expanding the knowledge base hat is available to professionals working in the field.”

    Who thought of this hare brained plan! These mooted changes do not have a patient’s best interests at heart! Walk in service and the Minor Injuries units should be placed centrally, giving easy access to all! The proposal leaves people on the other side of the city vulnerable. Not only that but the infrastructure of the surrounding area at the NGH is already at capacity and the car parking facilities are grossly inadequate. Come on…the changes are all about saving money, we are not fools. Please take into account societies most vulnerable people, the elderly, young mums and with possibly two or three children in tow, students away from home….For heaven’s sake do the RIGHT thing.
