Lincoln County Hospital is the largest of our hospital sites, situated next to the cathedral quarter in the north of the city. The award winning Lincolnshire Heart Centre which has some of the best outcomes for patients in the country is based at the hospital. Staff tell us that they join the hospital because they can see the opportunities open to them to develop services and make their mark.
About the DepartmentWe think we have a lot to be proud of and so do others.
Situated on the Lincoln County Hospital site the Lincolnshire Heart Centre opened in 2013 as a regional Heart Attack Centre (HAC) to provide 24/7 Primary PCI(PPCI) as the management of ST elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) to the population of Lincolnshire. Our state of the art, purpose built HAC has direct ambulance access, 2 fully equipped and integrated Siemens cardiac catheter laboratories and 2 five-bedded recovery areas. It offers a full complement of invasive coronary procedures including left heart catheterisation, Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI), Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), rotational atherectomy (rotablation) and ELCA (laser). In addition to this a comprehensive Brady pacing service is provided with plans to expand to complex device implantation in the near future. The centre performs in the region of 400 Primary PCIs (PPCI), 1000 PCI, 1500 Coronary Angiograms and 300 permanent pacemaker implants per year, with figures predicted to rise further in the coming year. Our HAC was used as an example of innovation and best practice for its PPCI pathway in the MINAP annual report – ‘How the NHS manages heart attacks’ (2014). We are currently within the top 10% for call to balloon and door to balloon times and secondary prevention. We were also shortlisted for the 2016 health service journal value awards in ‘service redesign’, ‘specialist services’ and ‘emergency medicine’. We achieved ‘Highly commended’ in the health service journal patient safety awards, (2014).
