Dr Iqbal Malik – BBC Documentary #Hospital

Dr Malik featured in #hospital, a BBC documentary filmed at the Imperial College hospitals.

He and the team performed a TAVI procedure on John, a 98 year old man. John has made a good recovery but it raised the issues of how affordable this type of care was. Dr Malik was clear that, although expensive on the day of surgery, it could save money as well as of course lives, by reducing subsequent admissions to hospital with heart failure and chest pain.

We all wish John well, and hope he makes 100. He has turned 99 now.
