Eligibility

Participant inclusion criteria

Patients on the waiting list for an appointment with the named cardiothoracic surgeon, will be identified by the research nurse. On average, five patients are referred to the Consultant Surgeon for consultation regarding revascularisation surgery, each week. To allow for patients who decline to participate in the study, the study will aim to recruit 20 patients over an eight-week period. Mapping postcodes on to available deprivation indicators will identify the socio economic background of the sample. A subsequent full-scale study would be stratified to ensure enhanced representation from patients living in areas of socio economic deprivation.
