  • Non Invasive Diagnostics


The Chairs of these groups come together with the Lead Cardiologists and Cardiology Service Managers to form the Cardiology Clinical Steering Group. This group prioritises the work of the clinical advisory groups and provides a forum to discuss regional issues relating to cardiology services. It also provides advice to the commissioners.  


There are also a number of other groups and regional agendas that are closely associated with the network

These include:-

  • The Patient Council
  • The NI Nurses Forum
  • The NI Cardiology Research Forum
  • The Service Framework Steering Group
  • The Information and Audit
  • The Health and Safety Forum  

The Network also links closely with all modernisation and reforming agendas within the Performance Management and Service Improvement Directorate of the Health and Social Care Board.


The overall role of the Network is to ensure coordinated strategic development of cardiac services in line with government policy, and both NICE and CREST guidance, ensuring the delivery of equitable access across Northern Ireland, improving the patient experience and promoting the delivery of high quality services.
