Wonderful donations maintain and improve King’s cardiology service through helping to buy state-of-the-art equipment and supporting pioneering research.
The generous support has provided a new ultrasound scanner, which is making heart surgery procedures safer and quicker for patients. There have also been new roles created for three research fellows to run a programme in finding innovative ways of treating heart valve disease.
‘It’s all about our philosophy of being world-class, it’s what we want to be,’ says Professor Mark Monaghan, Director of Non-Invasive Cardiology. ‘Donations are a vital component of helping us achieve that.’
