Monitoring and quality of Cardiac services

Summary of official information request

  • Was the CDHB not monitoring the quality of cardiac services for 2017, 2018, 2019?
    • If they did, can I have the quality reports. /Echo (which is currently the most definitive low cost screening procedure) wait times are not monitored by the CDHB for the last 3 years and no one is looking for correlation between Echo wait times and hospitalisation/death incidents?
  • Again, more formally: Was the CDHB not monitoring the quality of cardiac diagnostic services and the correlation to hospitalisation/death for 2017, 2018, 2019?
    • If they did, can I have the quality reports.
  • Does the CDHB produce quality reports to measure how many people were admitted to ED for heart condition while waiting for a diagnostic/procedure?
