Motion text

That this House notes with concern that an estimated 50,000 patients and their families are affected by refractory angina, a particularly painful and disabling form of angina that cannot be treated by revascularisation; further notes that the condition is becoming increasingly prevalent and costly; congratulates the award-winning National Refractory Angina Centre, enrac, in Liverpool, which the Under-Secretary of State for Health rightly described as `not only the best possible service to which [refractory angina sufferers] in this country can be referred ... but a blueprint for the development of other such services elsewhere', for being the only NHS service to be accredited with the maximum five stars in the prestigious UK Customer Experience Awards; and calls on the Secretary of State for Health to demonstrate commitment to his vision of `payment linked to levels of patient satisfaction through a powerful, new financial framework that rewards people-centred service and care' by intervening urgently where local mechanisms have failed and compelling the commissioners to make funds immediately available to provide cardiological support to safeguard this beacon of patient care for existing patients and the thousands who could benefit from its future replication.
