During the COVID-19 pandemic the National Health Service has continued to treat people with and without COVID-19.

The recovery of non-COVID-19 services, including cardiac services, is a continued priority for 2021/22. Local teams are working hard to restore services, including for patients with heart conditions, and to provide diagnostic tests and treatments to as many people as possible this winter.
