& Breathlessness

With today's release of the NHS Long Term Plan we'd like to give you some of the thoughts from our team.

Professor Martin Cowieacademic lead for our Breathlessness theme, who's work on our Atrial Fibrillation and Heart Failure projects, will have a large part to play in developing and leading this long term plan.

“The NHS long term plan identifies where the biggest wins can be made right along the care pathway: identifying people at high risk of cardiovascular events such as stroke or heart attack, giving GPs better access to the key diagnostic tests to speed up diagnosis and appropriate care, improving access to specialists when patients are admitted to hospital with heart failure, and increasing access to rehabilitation to improve quality of life after heart attack or heart failure. Now that the key areas have been identified, local services need to focus on these issues to deliver improved care and experience of care for those living in England. NW London CLAHRC has been active in all of these areas, and the new national plan adds impetus to its work”.
