News & Information For Arrhythmia Clinicians
The 11th annual report for the National Cardiac Rhythm Management (CRM) Device Audit presents the official record of CRM device procedures and quality issues related to the provision of CRM devices between 1st April 2015 and 31st March 2016. Recommendations are made based on these findings. The report covers centres in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. The report is aimed at a wide range of people and institutions with an interest in CRM device services. This includes those who need a factual record of procedure numbers: by hospital, area, nation within the UK. It also details the UK’s performance in the context of the European Union and its near neighbours. This is also the first year of a planned programme to increase the focus on quality and outcomes (clinical and technical) of CRM device procedures. It will therefore be of interest to patients, doctors and allied health professionals involved in CRM, hospital managers, clinical governance leads, commissioners, and government agencies including National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Authority (MHRA).
