This Department is managed by Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust

Cardiac Nurse

The team is led by nine Consultant Cardiologists, with each overseeing general Cardiology care of patients and specialising in different areas of Cardiology. The Consultants are supported by middle-grade and junior doctors from both the local post-graduate deanery and a Royal College of Physicians-sponsored international fellow. In addition, we have a Consultant Nurse and Nurse Specialists in heart failure, cardiac rehabilitation and heart rhythm disorders. Underpinning all of our activity is an excellent Cardio-Respiratory department.

In-patient care

Both the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital provide similar cardiac facilities. The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital has eight dedicated Coronary Care Unit (CCU) beds and a Cardiology ward of 12 beds. The Princess Royal Hospital has five dedicated CCU beds and a Cardiology ward of 20 beds. All diagnostic procedures and pacemaker insertions are undertaken locally. Patients requiring treatment with a coronary stent or open-heart surgery are referred onto local centres in Stoke, Wolverhampton or the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

Out-patient care

Approximately 7300 new out-patient Cardiology referrals were seen within the Trust last year. We answer all forms of general cardiology questions and offer specialist clinics in Cardio-thoracic Surgery, Electrophysiology and Adult Congenital Heart Disease. There is a Rapid Access Chest Pain Clinic that is currently meeting the two-week target at both Hospitals. Specialist cardiac nurses provide an excellent, integrated cardiac rehabilitation and heart failure service across the county which is highly praised by the patients. We have recently started a dedicated heart rhythm disorder clinic run by our new arrhythmia specialist nurse.
