An opportunity has arisen for the position of Fellow in Heart Failure and Cardiac Devices at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB). The post is fixed term for 12 months but an extension will be considered. The unit offers a supra-regional service for the management of patients with Heart Failure and Cardiac Devices.

On-site Cardiology sub-specialty services at QEHB include chronic and advanced heart failure, cardiac device therapy, adult congenital heart disease, coronary/structural heart intervention, advanced imaging and electrophysiology. The post offers the opportunity to develop further sub-specialty experience in heart failure and complex cardiac device implantation. This post is suitable for an individual who is nearing completion or has completed their Cardiology training (peri-CCT) in Heart Failure and Cardiac Devices and would like to gain further experience in this field prior to consultant appointment.

QEHB implants around 1200 devices per annum, including over 150 cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) devices. It receives tertiary referrals from other centres for failed CRT cases that require adjunct strategies (e.g. venoplasty, tunnelling, femoral systems) as well as subcutaneous ICDs, leadless pacemakers and conduction system pacing (CSP). The Cardiac Devices Service works hand-in-hand with Electrophysiology. All aspects of the service involve experimental and clinical research, which is regularly published in major peer-reviewed journals. The post holder will have the opportunity to contribute to this with alignment based on their own interests.
