The Health Screening Department at The Alexandra Hospital also offers a comprehensive cardiac screen for patients who have a family history of heart problems or who wish to monitor their heart fitness in order to detect early signs of a problem. A Consultant Cardiologist reports on each screen. 

Invasive procedures

Most of our Consultant Cardiologists can perform invasive cardiology procedures. Below are some of the procedures we offer:

We offer the following diagnostic imaging at the hospital:

  • CT coronary angioplasty – The CT scanner provides highly detailed images of blood vessels and the heart. It is used for finding narrowing in the coronary arteries, significant heart disease and artery disease, or congenital abnormalities.
  • CT calcium storing – This detects and measures calcium build up on the walls of the arteries that supply the heart (coronary arteries). This test is used to check for heart disease in the early stages and to determine its severity.

Making an appointment

Our consultants have clinics throughout the week. Once your heart condition has been diagnosed, patients will be referred to an appropriate consultant with a special interest and experience in that area.
