If you do need reassurance, The Park One Stop Cardiology Clinic is open every week, and offers patients an initial consultation with a Consultant Cardiologist, an examination, diagnostic tests and results all in one appointment, helping to alleviate any worries and concerns quickly.
What does the service included?
You will have an initial consultation with a Consultant Cardiologist, during this time diagnostic testing including an ECG and Echocardiogram will be carried out. Your Consultant will then provide you with the results of these tests, and recommended a treatment plan or suggest further diagnostic investigations if required.
What is an ECG?
An ECG (Electrocardiogram) is a test to check your heart’s rhythm and electrical activity. Sensors are attached to the skin and used to detect the electrical signals produced by your heart when it beats.
The test is painless and takes around 5 - 10 minutes.
What is an Echocardiogram?
An Echocardiogram is an ultrasound scan that provides a detailed view of the structure of your heart including the muscle and tissue to see how well your heart is pumping, and assess the valves and chambers of the heart. The test is painless and takes about 30 - 45 minutes.
What is the cost for an appointment?
Appointments are £795 which includes consultation, the ECG and Echocardiogram diagnostic testing.
Do I need a GP referral?
If you are paying for your own treatment you do not need a referral from your GP and can book in directly with the clinic. If you wish to attend the clinic and have private medical insurance, you will need a referral from a GP. Without an appropriate referral your medical insurance company may decline to reimburse you.
What happens if I require further tests?
If you require further investigations (blood tests or scans) you are not obliged to use The Park Hospital services. If you choose to continue your treatment at The Park Hospital, our Consultant Cardiologist will organise further investigations for you and an ongoing treatment plan.
Should you wish to continue your care under your NHS GP, with your consent, a letter will be sent to them outlining our recommendations for any further investigations or a referral to a Consultant of their choice.
