In brief

BJC Staff

Abstract

Large-scale studies examining these key aspects of work have been carried out in the US, but not within the UK and there is a significant data gap. The survey will take only 15–20 minutes to complete and will provide valuable insight in to the professional life of the UK cardiologist.

Primary Care Cardiovascular Society announces its relaunch

Kathryn E Griffith

Abstract

For over 10 years, the Primary Care Cardiovascular Society (PCCS) was an active organisation flying the flag for high quality cardiovascular care for patients in the community. It was a multidisciplinary organisation and supported the education of all members of the primary care team, working alongside the BJC. Unfortunately, like many good things, six years ago the organisation came to an end. Since that time there has been a group of GPs who have maintained regular contact and meetings as the GPSI Forum. Many members of this group are well-known primary care leaders working in national, professional societies and with organisations such as

New series on insights from the Bradford Healthy Hearts project

BJC Staff

Abstract

The initiative was launched in February 2015 and in a relatively short period of time, the project achieved success in all three areas with measurable improvement in outcomes, including a reduction in hospitalisations. Over 24 months, there have been around 21,000 clinical interventions, with the emphasis being on delivering change at scale, whilst being fastidious about minimising any extra workload on primary care. In this period, 13,000 patients either started statins or had their statins changed, more than 1,000 patients with atrial fibrillation were anticoagulated, and more than 5,200 hypertensive patients reached a blood pressure targe

Primary Care Cardiovascular Society announces closure

News from the world of cardiology

Abstract

The Society was closed following an Extraordinary General Meetingof the PCCS where there was a unanimous vote in favour of the motion ‘To approve the proposed voluntary winding up of the PCCS, its dissolution and removal from the Central Register of Charities’. A statement released by the PCCS says “Since the PCCS was established 15 years ago, it has relied heavily on the pharmaceutical industry to support its educational activities. The recession and patentexpiries have had a significant impact on the pharmaceutical industry and the availability of funds for all activities, including the PCCS. This situation is likely to de

Quality in CVD care – taking the lead in the new NHS

BJCardio Staff

Abstract

Navigating the changing landscape of cardiovascular commissioning A clear majority (58%) of GPs with a special interest in cardiology (GPSIs) feel unprepared to fulfill a commissioning role in the new NHS landscape, despite almost half of GPs being currently involved in commissioning, according to results from the REACCT (REAssessing Cardiology Commissioning and Treatment) report announced at the meeting. The report also reveals that a majority of cardiologists (57%) feel unprepared to take on new commissioning roles around the management of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The report (available from: www.pccs.org.uk/report) was written by the P
