The rapid access chest pain clinic (RACPC) provides a specialist service for people who present to their GP with symptoms that suggest new onset angina. We aim to see all patients within two weeks of being referred.
The clinic is run by cardiology nurse specialists and is supported by Professor Marber, consultant cardiologist, and by cardiac physiologists who perform and analyse the cardiac tests.
