Nine consultants at Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust have been recognised in the National Heart and Lung Institute’s (NHLI) recent academic promotions, which celebrate the work of academics in the fields of medicine, engineering, natural sciences and business.
Ahead of World Heart Day on Sunday, September 29th, Minister of State for Care, Rt. Hon. Caroline Dinenage MP, visited the pioneering transplant unit at Harefield Hospital to meet patients and staff and hear about the unit’s ground-breaking 'artificial heart' programme and use of the Organ Care System.

This was our first visit to Harefield and we were very impressed with all the members of staff we came into contact with. Extremely helpful, curteous and eager to help you through the hospital experience.

I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff @RBandH - the CF team, Foulis ward nurses and everyone else. Without you I wouldn't be here today ... you kept fighting for me and I will be forever thankful.
