Courses offered to GPs
Dr Virdee would be happy to attend GP surgeries to give update talks, Q&A sessions, informal teaching
For CRT, the highest implant success rate in the East of England, in excess of 98%.
For simple cardiac ablations, 100% success rate without complication.
For AF ablation, as accepted success rates with a repeat procedure rate of 20%.
