The new state-of-the art Barts Heart Centre at St Bartholomew’s Hospital brings together services and staff from the London Chest and University College London Hospitals’ The Heart Hospital in Marylebone.
With state-of-the-art facilities, the centre has 10 theatres, 10 catheter labs, 250 general cardiac beds and 58 critical care beds, and will perform more heart surgery, MRI and CT scans than any other centre in the world. It will be Europe’s largest specialised cardiovascular centre, covering a population of three million people across north and east London, west Essex and beyond. It will also create the world’s biggest centre of excellence for adults with congenital heart disease.
As well as outpatients, emergency services will be provided 24/7 by expert multi-disciplinary teams. With larger pools of expert staff, more services can be provided for patients seven days a week and for more hours of the day, providing prompt access to treatment in all departments and helping reduce waits and cancellations. Patients will also be able to take part in a wider range of clinical trials, knowing they will be treated by teams working at the forefront of innovation.
