The Network links clinicians, managers and commissioners involved in every aspect of cardiac care through the NHS system. Staff working together can focus on solving problems for patients wherever they are in the system. By stepping out of the usual organisational boundaries the staff across the Network can have a more balanced overview of how the whole system works.
