Clinical indications and triage of echocardiography poster set

The focus of these documents is to try and streamline national triage processes, reducing variation and helping to reduce and address back log issues across the UK.

This project arose through a round table workshop with the pan-London NHSEI group looking at addressing the COVID-induced backlog of patients waiting for specialist tests including echocardiography.  The posters have been reviewed and formally endorsed by the London Cardiac Network Group and the London Clinical Advisory Group.

Poster sizes:
  • Outpatient requests (excluding the follow-up of established valve disease): A0
  • Heart valve disease: A1
  • Emergency inpatient and critical care: A1

Orders are open until Friday 26 February 2021 for delivery in early March. Poster sets will then be sent on a rolling basis as necessary.

If you are based outside the United Kingdom, or would like to print the posters through your Reprographics Department, please click here to download a ZIP file including the posters and instructions for printers. We strongly recommend that posters should not be printed on a standard office or domestic printer as the quality will not be sufficient to display the detailed information.

Please note: London centres will automatically receive the posters sets, so please do not place an order.
