Become a Patient Representative for the Cardiology Transformation Delivery Group
NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin are looking for a keen volunteer to act as a Community Representative for our Cardiology Transformation Delivery Group
Cardiology is the part of healthcare that deals with diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the heart.
In Shropshire Telford and Wrekin there are around 66,000 people living with heart and circulatory diseases. These heart and circulatory diseases cause 110 deaths each month in Shropshire Telford and Wrekin. Around 81,000 people in Shropshire Telford and Wrekin have been diagnosed with high blood pressure and 13,000 with Atrial Fibrillation.
This transformation programme plans to redesign cardiology services to improve the referral processes and patient experience, reduce unnecessary journeys and visits to the hospital for appointments, and provide support or advice in different ways.
To assist the redesign of the service, a working group has been established which consists of key healthcare professionals involved in the delivery of cardiology care. You will help make sure that the group considers the views and experiences of people using local services to influence the future of services across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.
