Working with our Stakeholders

We work with the British Cardiovascular Society Clinical Study Groups and other professional bodies representing cardiovascular disease sub-specialties in the UK to define the research agenda, identify and support new clinical researchers and promote patient involvement in study design, delivery and recruitment.

British Heart Foundation, the UK’s major heart charity and largest independent funder of cardiovascular research, is represented on our specialty group.

Collaboration with other clinical specialties is integral to service delivery and research into cardiovascular disease. We work closely with other specialties, including Diabetes, Injuries and Emergencies, Renal Disorders, Stroke and Primary Care. This provides access to support and expertise which helps to maximise opportunities for recruitment of study participants.

Cardiovascular research is not only undertaken by cardiologists, but also by allied health professionals including paramedics and cardiac research nurses.

Collaboration with the Devolved Nations

Clinical research is being undertaken across the United Kingdom. We continue to work closely with the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish clinical research networks to support the design and delivery of high quality research.
