It takes a lot of heart to work in The Essex Cardiothoracic Centre (CTC) as staff showed when they allowed social media into their departments.
On Thursday 24 September, Twitter and Facebook users were able to find out more about the different departments within the CTC and the amazing lifesaving procedures that take place there.
From theatres and cardiac catheter labs, to wards, to outpatients, all areas were covered with regular updates giving facts, figures and fascinating information.
Stuart Harris, clinical director for the CTC, said: “We received a great response from members of the public, who left some wonderful comments about the work we do. There was also a great buzz on the day among the staff who are very supportive of each other. The CTC provides an important service but its success depends on the talented and passionate staff we have here.”
