The aim of the BHVS register of clinicians self-reporting valve competencies is therefore to:
- Guide clinicians in planning training and CPD to gain competencies in valve disease
- Raise the standard of and reduce the variability in valve care by encouraging key quality measures
- Provide a set of information for patients to judge whether their care is run by clinicians with suitable competencies
- Guide commissioners on components likely to reflect a specialist service
All members appearing here have declared qualifications and activity sufficient to qualify for specialist competencies in heart valve disease. However the British Heart Valve Society does not verify information or assess members and therefore does not formally approve or recommend any individual.
