Cardiology (Heart)

We offer cardiac services including diagnostic testing and some surgery. We are led by some of the UK’s top heart consultants and supported by a team of highly skilled staff including nurses, radiographers and physiologists, providing tailored and supportive approaches to treatment.

Heart Diagnosis and Screening

We offer a range of diagnostic and screening services for heart and circulatory disorders. Tests available include the following:

  • Electrocardiography (ECG) – electrodes are attached to your chest and are connected to a small portable recorder. You will return to the centre after 24 to 48 hours to have it removed and the data analysed. This can help diagnose abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia), angina, coronary heart disease, Brugada syndrome, heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy) and heart failure.
  • Exercise ECG, stress test or exercise tolerance test – electrodes are attached to you as in a normal ECG test, then the amount of blood reaching your heart is monitored while you walk on a treadmill or cycle on a static bike. It can be used to diagnose abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia), heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy) and catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT).
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan – a powerful electromagnet is used to create a detailed image of the heart and blood vessels. It can help to diagnose heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy), heart valve disease and angina.
  • Chest x-ray – a scan which uses radiation to create a clear picture of the inside of your chest and can help to diagnose heart failure, heart disease and pericarditis (inflammation of the lining of the heart).
