Cardiology experts from Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust have launched a new scientific event in a bid to provide more high-quality learning opportunities for clinicians in the UK.
The first annual London Arrhythmia Summit will take place in March, bringing together experts from organisations across the world, to discuss the latest advancements in cardiology and electrophysiology, including important new studies and changes to guidelines.
The event is an important addition to the annual UK conference calendar, which previously included just one notable arrhythmia event, the Heart Rhythm Congress.
The summit is directed by consultants Dr Tom Wong, Dr Vias Markides, Dr Wajid Hussain and Dr Shouvik Haldar, along with Professor John Camm from St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, an expert in atrial fibrillation.
Dr Haldar explained: “This is an exciting opportunity for anyone with an interest in heart rhythm to attend a truly high-quality educational event with some of the world’s leading clinicians, right on their doorstep.
“The calibre of the speakers who have agreed to come and present is testament to the importance of Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals, and of London, in the world of arrhythmia management and treatment.
“We have put together an engaging and thought-provoking programme, with relevant topics and the opportunity for discussion and debate.”
The one-day summit – which takes place on 16 March – is open to anyone with an interest in heart rhythm, including cardiologists, electrophysiologists, physicians, GPs, trainees or those considering specialising in cardiology, and allied health professionals.
The course directors have worked with charitable organisation The Arrhythmia Alliance to make the event free to attend for trainees and allied health professionals.
