  • Perfusion team (both for RHC and for city)

If this is Monday – Friday 0830-1700, then this will be by contacting the theatre coordinator who can then advise on the availability of cardiac theatre.

If this is Monday- Thursday 1700 – 0830 or Friday 1700 – Monday 0800, then it is the responsibility of the emergency theatre team to contact the on-call cardiac theatre team, RHC and city perfusion team via switchboard.
