Cardiovascular – Shift practice and rota

The normal working hours are 9am-5 pm. On Catheterisation laboratory days 8am-5pm. When trainees are in the lab, the ward cover is usually covered by the other cardiology SpRs. Trainees also share the ACS list as part of the morning duties. Usually, if all staff is there, someone does the ACS list, the ward round and a colleague is in the lab. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, at least two trainees are at the clinic at 9.30am. The rota is 1:13.


There is usually a ratio of 1:12 Registrars on-call or a 1:14 ratio.

Weekday on-call: 9am-9.30 pm
