Following recent expansion of the department, we are now seeking a colleague who, with the multi-disciplinary team, will provide specialist care of Heart Failure patients, within Inpatient, Outpatient, Ambulatory and Virtual Ward settings.

The department includes 14 consultants with specialist interest in echocardiography, imaging, heart failure, cardio-oncology, ischaemic heart disease, cardiac rhythm management and maternity cardiology, and it delivers the regional Inherited Cardiac Conditions service. Five consultants have primary appointments with the University of Cambridge.

Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is collocated on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, housing the regional surgical centre and providing Coronary and Structural Intervention, Electrophysiology and Transplant / Mechanical Circulatory Support services.
