Medical Advisory Committee
Peninsula Heart Clinic has a Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) to ensure we achieve and maintain medical excellence across all our services.
All medical practitioners at Peninsula Heart Clinic are part of the MAC which offers guidance and advice on all areas of clinical practice and meets at regular quarterly intervals through the course of the year. The MAC has a robust clinical governance strategy with appointed leads for clinical governance and clinical audit.
The MAC also reports into the University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust Clinical Governance committees. This ensures robust controls are always in place for the quaility and effectiveness of care we deliver.
Our clinical director is Dr Girish Viswanathan and our head of governance and audit is Dr Sivasankar Sangaraju.
Both Dr Viswanathan and Dr. Sangaraju hold identical positions within University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust. We believe this closely joined governance and reporting structure ensures clinical safety is maintained across all our services.
