GPwSI in Cardiology: A Personal View


I have had an interest in cardiology for some time, which developed during my time in anaesthesia and I felt that primary care had more to offer in this area. Some brief research (and a few emails) encouraged me to further develop my interest when I heard what others were doing in primary care. I was particularly interested in developing a local echocardiography service due to my personal interest in ultrasound and the pressures on our secondary care provider. A quick audit revealed a turn around time of almost four months from our local open access echo service (from dictation of referral to the typed report landing on my desk). The final catalyst was my desire to work as a GP with a special interest as the daily grind of full time partnership was adversely affecting my quality of life.
