The British Cardiovascular Society: an overview

Abstract

Founded in 1922, the BCS has developed over the years into a complex organisation that plays a pivotal role in the delivery of cardiovascular health across the UK. There are currently over 2,100 members of the BCS and membership is growing steadily to include the overwhelming majority of UK cardiologists and many other professionals with an interest in cardiovascular medicine. Our members include non-clinical scientists, cardiac surgeons, nurses, technicians and primary care physicians. We have over 300 trainee members and currently offer great value joint membership for BCS with the British Junior Cardiologists’ Association. BCS aims to su

Abstract

Missing data Figure 1. Computed tomography (CT) sagittal reconstruction, two-chamber view. The subepicardial myocardium is thin and normally compacted with a thicker non-compacted subendocardial layer in the anterior wall and apex. Note the artefact from the right ventricular (RV) pacemaker tip There are, however, justified concerns with regard to MINAP data relating to data quality and completeness of ascertainment. These concerns reflect, in some cases, difficulties experienced by some hospitals with data collection. Systematic differences between patients with and without information recorded may bias the estimated performance of a hospita
