Cardiac nurse recognised for work on arrhythmia services

  • Comment

A nurse from the North East has become the first non medic to win a major charity award for her work on arrhythmia.

Nurse consultant in cardiac rhythm management Jayne Mudd has become the first non doctor to win the Arrhythmia Alliance award for “Outstanding Medical Contribution to Cardiac Rhythm Management Services”.

Ms Mudd and her team assess, diagnose and treat patients with arrhythmia at the James Cook University Hospital, where they have also developed outreach clinics in the Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland area. The team also recently launched a new dedicated service for patients experiencing blackouts. 

Ms Mudd, also the country’s first nurse consultant in cardiac rhythm management, said: “I was delighted to have picked up the award on behalf of our team.

“Since the launch of the community arrhythmia service in 2007, we have vastly improved access to specialist services for patients as well as streamlining their pathways. We are also very proud that our model has been replicated around the country.”

Dr Mike Stewart, chief of cardiothoracic servicesat South Tees Hospitals Trust, said: “Jayne has demonstrated just how valuable nurse practitioners can be in developing and improving services for our patients. 

“We are delighted to see her work to help local cardiac patients being recognised nationally.”
