Training in valve disease

Informal teaching with valve consultants and involvement in valve clinic – following up patients with valve implants/replacements

Specialist valve activity

Runs a telephone-based nurse valve clinic separate from the consultant clinic (mod/severe native valve disease).  This started during the pandemic with a plan to have the nurse led valve clinic alongside consultant valve clinic to enable problems to be dealt with more expeditiously.

Moderate native valve disease, and post intervention.  Approx 400 TAVI p.a.

Process
Weekly valve MDT.  Links with all cardiac services. One-stop echo not currently  available.  Patient information leaflets supplied and performs patient satisfaction surveys and audits
