Courses offered to GPs
I am happy to offer lectures and small group, case based discussions to GPs across Staffordshire and Cheshire. Areas of interest are high blood pressure and high cholesterol as well as the management of angina and heart failure.
This represents the publicly report outcome for my own angioplasty figures from the British Cardiovascular Interventional Society database. MACCE is a combination of all major cardiovascular complications such as death stroke and heart attack.
My outcome is 2.34%, well inside the upper limit of 8.26%
