Executive Management Committee
Cambridge Heart Clinic has a Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) to ensure we achieve and maintain medical excellence across all our services. All medical practitioners that operate with us must complete a strict application process to apply for practising privileges and be part of our MAC. These practice privileges must be renewed annually. The MAC which offers guidance and advice on all areas of clinical practice and meets at regular quarterly intervals through the course of the year. The MAC has a robust clinical governance strategy with appointed leads for clinical governance and clinical audit. The MAC also reports into the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Clinical Governance committees. This ensures robust controls are always in place for the quality and effectiveness of care we deliver.
Our Clinical Director is Dr Peter Pugh, lead consultant cardiologist, who also holds the position of Clinical Director of Cardiology at Addenbrooke’s. This closely joined governance and reporting structure helps to ensure clinical safety is maintained across all our services.
