Having been named champions by senior regional NHS experts, they were presented with their award at a special ceremony in the Palace of Westminster by James Frith on 10th July.
James said: “I know that everyone in Bury will share my delight and pride that Bury’s cardiology team has been named regional champion.
“They are representing the thousands of staff and volunteers who work across Bury to shape, deliver and support health and care services. They exemplify the best of what the NHS and its partners do day in, day out.”
