Situation

Caring for over 115,000 people annually for complex heart problems UK Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital treats is the leading specialist centre in the UK. The Covid-19 Pandemic has meant there is now a backlog of people in need of life changing surgery. To help us speed this process we need to purchase 2 3D Transoesophageal Echo (TOE) Machines which provide a 3D image of the heart prior to surgery as well as real time information both during and post operatively.

Solution

The purchase of the TOE machines will enable us to ensure that we can have accurate and comprehensive information prior to operating. This will enable us to plan more effectively and speed the care of the patient both pre and post operatively as TOE machines will provide an in-depth view of the whole heart. In this way the planning of operations can be streamlined and the numbers of people receiving surgery can be increased.
