Cardiac electrophysiology research team donation

24 July 2017

One our most industrious research teams has been able to use funds generated from participation in a variety of clinical studies to supply state of the art computer equipment to the Inherited Cardiovascular Conditions (ICC) Service and Cardiology wards at Leeds General Infirmary.

The Cardiac Electrophysiology Research Team led by Consultant Cardiologist Muzahir Tayebjee with Clinical Research Fellow Dr James O’Neill, Cardiac Research Nurse Lisa Clark, and Research Co-ordinator Rebecca Cook have donated a stainless steel trolley, computer and printer to the ICC service and three portable laptops to the cardiology wards.

With patient records, investigation results and prescription charts all now being stored electronically, it is becoming increasingly important to have easy access to these digital systems and so with this donation it is hoped that daily ward rounds and clinics will become more efficient and overall patient care will continue to improve.

This demonstrates how successful research can not only lead to scientific advances but can also directly improve our clinical services and this collaboration between research and clinical teams once again illustrates The Leeds Way in action.
