Our cardiology departments have a wide range of experts working together in multidisciplinary teams to deliver outstanding care. This commitment to team working has led to the delivery of consistently excellent success: our results in children and adults with severe and complicated heart problems are second to none in the UK.

Our units have trained many cardiologists who now work in high quality centres throughout the world, including our own, and we have a number of programmes in place for maintaining skills in all the specialisms we offer, such as ECMO.
