A multidisciplinary team

Patients are supported by our sub-specialised team of consultant cardiologists, vascular surgeons and radiologists who develop personalised treatment plans within a multidisciplinary framework.

Dedicated pre and post operative protocols and passionate nursing care provide continuity of care for patients and their families, and our physiotherapists, occupational therapists and podiatrists work collaboratively to coordinate, support and speed patient recovery.

Here, the vascular team regularly collaborate with colleagues from other fields of medicine such as cardiology, thoracic, endocrinology, liver and gastroenterology. This strong network means we’re extremely confident in developing robust care plans – and experienced in treating patients with the most complex of needs.
