GDPR brief comment

You will all be aware that your inboxes will have been filled with communications from various websites. The key issues to note are:

We have to send/receive data securely. (so please send anonymised data, eg the cases I post may have different ages/gender to the case and there is no patient identifier data)

We do not share data with other parties without permission. (so please use for teaching, but delete and do not use another formats/platforms)

We keep your data secure (the only data secured is your email contact data, apart from those listed as referral points). Please let me know if you wish me to remove you from the circulation list.

Any other thoughts do let me know, but I hope you will continue to use the forum for cases and information.

kind regards

Cardiac Pathology Network

The UK Cardiac Pathology Network seeks to promote best practice and knowledge in cardiac pathology cases

The UK Cardiac Pathology Network (UK-CPN) was set up in 2006 after the publication of the NHS National Service Framework Chapter 8 document “Arrhythmia and sudden death”. This publication recognised the need for effective and accurate cardiac pathology services across the United Kingdom.

The goals of the group were primarily to provide a network for cardiac disease-interested pathologists to refer cases to one another, and also to provide the setting for general pathologists to refer cases inwards.

Secondly, the network group decided that regular teaching should be available for those at consultant and trainee level in order to enhance cardiac pathology understanding and skills.

The third activity was the introduction of a Department of Health funded database of cardiac pathology. Whilst this was active for several years, the funding was later withdrawn and the content data was subsumed in to another database.
