The UCLH Cardio-Oncology Service has recently been recognised by the International Cardio-Oncology Society as a Gold Centre of Excellence. This is the highest designation possible and is an acknowledgement of the dedication and hard work put in by the team to develop and expand the service. Further, the committee was impressed with the quality improvement projects initiated across UCLH in this emerging area and saw the work to be a guiding example for other healthcare organisations to follow.
Members of the Hatter Cardiovascular Institute – Professor Malcolm Walker, Professor Derek Yellon, Dr Arjun Ghosh, Dr Daniel Chen and nurse Alison Macklin – are all integral parts of this UCLH Cardio-Oncology team and we congratulate them on this distinguished award. We are proud of the research they undertake as part of the HCI which will continue to advance therapies in this important area.
