Integration of Rapid Access Chest Pain Clinics

Dear Colleague

In the interest of standardisation of care and in line with current NICE guidance we wish to inform you of a change to the referral process for our rapid access chest pain clinics at the County and Royal Stoke sites.  

May we request that in future all referrals are made on the referral proforma which allows you to indicate the patient's choice of preferred clinic location?  Every attempt will be made to allocate clinic appointments according to this preference but we hope you will understand that there may be occasions when an appointment at your patient's preferred site may not be possible in the interests of preventing avoidable delay.
