Cardiology Ward 6A

We are the Cardiac Care Unit based on Level 6A of the Millennium Wing. This ward is a 14 bedded Acute Cardiology Ward (up to 8 of these beds can be Coronary Care beds) plus a Cardiology Day Case unit with 12 trolleys. All our patients present with an acute cardiac event including Myocardial Infarction, heart failure and cardiac rhythm disturbances.
In our Day Case Unit patients come from home to have a cardiac procedure, such as a coronary angiogram, Ablation studies and pacemaker insertion, and then go home following a short recovery period.

We have a dedicated team of staff, many of whom have worked within Cardiology for many years.  All of our senior staff have undertaken Cardiology modules at Brighton university meaning that we have a large pool of knowledge and experience on the ward. We also run an Introduction to Cardiology course which all new members to the team undertake ensuring each member of staff has a good basic knowledge of cardiology.
