Aortic Dissection Field Guide for Primary Care

This document, produced in collaboration with the Primary Care Cardiovascular Society (PCCS), supports the aims of the Trust to bring consistency of treatment across the whole patient pathway through education, policy change and fostering research.

The PCCS is delighted to be working with the Trust in producing this field guide to aortic dissection, to ensure that everyone with aortic dissection has their opportunity to live a better quality of life.

Dr Victoria McKay, Consultant Clinical Geneticist, Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Dr Bejal Pandya, Consultant Cardiologist, Barts Health NHS Foundation Trust both made valuable contributions to this guide for which we are grateful.

Both organisations look forward to working together on future projects and with the wider health service. And in doing so, we’re confident we can improve the lives of people living with aortic dissection across the UK & Ireland.
