About us

Our mission

Our aim is to ensure that pacemaker patients can access cancer and stroke care reliant on MRI, just like the rest of us.

Who we are

PaceMRI was designed for use in the NHS in the United Kingdom. PaceMRI was created by NHS professionals and is coupled with the MRI My Pacemaker Campaign and a network of NHS hospitals. It has been developed with support from professional societies, patient charities and the British Heart Foundation. Solving the health inequality means working at multiple levels to make a digital platform relevant in the real-world. We have spent years working with commissioners, policy makers, patients, referrers and clinicians to reduce barriers to MRI access, ensuring provision is safe, and staff are trained to run services. The platform has been developed in this context to make services “safer, easier and faster”.
