LONDON: Cleveland Clinic — the No. 1 provider of cardiovascular care in the US for 25 years in a row, according to US News & World Report — is hosting an international faculty of leading cardiovascular specialists at the Royal Society of Medicine on 13/14 September, to give a comprehensive analysis of state-of-the-art practices in cardiovascular medicine and surgery. The specialty will form a core focus at Cleveland Clinic’s new hospital, which opens at 33 Grosvenor Place, London, in Spring 2021. A dedicated nursing programme will run concurrently to ensure a holistic approach that reflects Cleveland Clinic’s delivery of care.

Cardiovascular medicine is a rapidly evolving discipline, with research studies and clinical trials continually expanding the evidence base related to the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease. In addition, new technologies, drugs and devices are expanding the therapeutic choices available to practitioners. This meeting will give cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, general practitioners, nurses and nurse practitioners an in-depth review of cardiovascular medicine and surgery, and aims to drive collaboration between healthcare providers to deliver the best possible patient outcomes.

“Medical innovation and knowledge sharing are central to Cleveland Clinic’s mission,” said Brian Donley, M.D., CEO of Cleveland Clinic London. “We are very pleased to host our first medical education event in London with an exceptional group of international speakers. We look forward to engaging with UK cardiologists, GPs, nurses and medical students to make this a truly interactive meeting that sparks ongoing discussion.”

Professor Olaf Wendler, chair of the Heart & Vascular Institute at Cleveland Clinic London added, “Cleveland Clinic has a global reputation for patient-focused, evidence-based and effective cardiovascular care. This conference, which includes speakers from Cleveland Clinic’s US and UK teams, will focus on the latest developments in cardiovascular therapies and give an insight to future opportunities that will provide patients with exceptional care.”

Cleveland Clinic is one of the leading providers of specialised medical care in the world, providing clinical excellence and superior patient outcomes. Its London hospital, opening in 2021, will offer a new model of private healthcare in the UK, with a doctor-led, research-driven approach and the very latest technology. Cleveland Clinic London will offer a broad range of clinical services, with particular focus on cardiology, neurology, orthopaedics and digestive disease. In addition to the new hospital, the Clinic’s Medical Outpatient Building is currently being fitted out at 24 Portland Place, near Harley Street, and is scheduled to open in 2020. Cardiology services will be offered at both sites.

“Challenges in the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease: A contemporary update” and “Advances in cardiovascular nursing – An international perspective” take place at the Royal Society of Medicine on 13 and 14 September. For further information visit www.rsm.ac.uk/events.
