CHD services reorganisation

NHS England is proposing to close down some specialist CHD services and concentrate activity on a small number of hospitals.  Hospitals losing include
  • Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust
  • University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust
  • Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust
  • Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
  • University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust
These changes are mainly due to failure to meet new national service standard, including minimum number of procedures for a surgeon.  Further details are available here.
