New films about life at UCLH 

03/01/2013 00:00 

Three new films about hospital life at UCLH have been posted on the Trust website.

The three-minute films showcase the work of the Heart Hospital, the Hospital for Tropical Diseases and the University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre.

The Heart Hospital film takes a whistlestop tour round some of the services on offer, including cardiac MRI and the hospital’s research into inherited cardiovascular disease. It also looks at the TAVI team (transcutaneous aortic valve implantation) which includes vascular and cardiac surgeons and specialist nurses providing multidisciplinary, one-stop clinic assessment, programmed investigation and ultimately, an informed choice of procedure for patients.

The Heart Hospital film also includes an interview with a registrar on why he chooses to work there, and an explanation of the work carried out in the intensive care unit by lead nurse Keisha Mills.

The Cancer Centre film includes an interview with Prof Mark Emberton on the work the centre is doing on prostate cancer, and an interview with an ambulatory care patient who opted to stay at the Trust’s patient hotel during her chemotherapy treatment.

The Hospital for Tropical Diseases film focuses on the work of the parasitology laboratory, the Trust’s working in treating conditions like malaria and leprosy and the close links with the University College Hospital clinical infectious diseases service.
