London Cardiovascular Commissioning Project 2011June 12, 2011
At the core of this project is the desire to improve outcomes for patients. The London Cardiac Surgery project is designed to enable commissioners to identify and commission a world-class cardiac surgery service.The project has been developed following publication of the proposed model of care from the former body Commissioning Support for London (CSL). The model was a result of a robust assessment of how cardiac surgery services are currently provided in the capital and a review of clinical evidence and national and international best practice. A patient panel informed the model from start to finish, ensuring the recommendations were patient centred.
