£100k of funding to open new heart unit at Norwich hospital

Patients with heart conditions will be able to benefit from treatment in a new state-of-the-art cardiology room.

Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital has opened the new procedure room which received £100,000 of funding towards new equipment and the redesign.

It is the fourth lab at NNUH and is being used to treat patients who are having heart attacks and other heart-related conditions requiring urgent management.

The project has received funding of £55,000 from the Norfolk Heart Trust to help complete the works and £50,000 to buy haemodynamic equipment.

David Ashman, Cath Lab Manager at NNUH, said: "This is a fascinating project for us as it is part of an expansion of cardiology services at NNUH. That will enable us to improve our service dramatically by giving patients faster access to tests and procedures like ablation, angiograms, angioplasty and pacemaker implantations."
