The National Institute for Health Research  (NIHR) Cardiovascular Health Care Co-operative (HTC) successfully completed at the end of December 2017. We are pleased to inform you that Clinical Director Professor Reza Razavi and his team at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust was awarded a further £1.4 million by the NIHR in a newly created MedTech Co-operative to support the development of new technologies for patients suffering from cardiovascular disease.

The funding has enabled the creation of a MedTech Co-operative, run in partnership with King’s College London, which is developing new medical technologies for patients suffering from narrowed coronary arteries, heart rhythm problems, reduced heart pump function, narrow heart valves, and heart disease in children.

We work in partnership with patients and patient groups, front-line staff, leading expert researchers, and the technology and device industry to develop healthcare solutions which will improve care for patients suffering from a wide range of cardiovascular conditions.
