Our Cardiology Suite offers dedicated cardiology services with a Consultant-led approach
Cardiologists specialise in the treatment of anything related to the heart and blood vessels.
Symptoms associated with heart problems can be particularly worrying due to the potentially serious nature of these conditions. With the added stress and anxiety these symptoms can cause, you won’t want to be left with unanswered questions and uncertainty. A rapid assessment and accurate diagnosis from an experienced cardiologist is therefore of the utmost importance.
If you are concerned about any symptoms, our cardiologists at Ridgeway can provide you with an accurate diagnosis and the assurance of a personalised treatment plan to address your symptoms and bring you relief. Along with local Swindon patients, it’s no wonder people travel from Cirencester, Newbury, Chippenham and Devizes for the expert care on offer at BMI Ridgeway Hospital. Symptoms of heart disease may include:
You may also wish to see a specialist for reassurance, even if you haven’t been experiencing symptoms. If you have a family history of heart disease, such as coronary artery disease, or you have high cholesterol, a wellness check may help put your mind at ease.
Occasionally, other specialties will refer you to Cardiology, especially if any concerns have arisen during your pre-operative assessment, providing reassurance to you and your surgeon prior to your surgery.
Your symptoms may indicate conditions of the heart, such as:
Angina (clogging of the arteries, causing chest pain)
Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat)
Heart valve disease
High blood pressure
Cardiomyopathy (thickening of the heart walls)
Congenital heart conditions (abnormalities from birth)
Inherited/family heart conditions
It can be worrying for anyone to receive a diagnosis of a heart condition, but our experienced cardiologists can offer reassurance, with a streamlined route to recovery in a swift manner.
Particular areas of excellence at Ridgeway include:
Heart valve disease
The detection, prevention and treatment of coronary heart disease
Whatever your concern, whatever your condition, our cardiologists will find the right course of action for you, based on in-depth investigations and evidence-based treatment.
Available at Ridgeway for patients with arrythmia, a procedure known as cardioversion can help restore your regular heartbeat. This involves a general anaesthetic, during which small electric shocks are given to the heart. This is often very effective, and your consultant can advise if this procedure is appropriate for you.
Many conditions can be managed effectively with prescription medication, which can be picked up on-site at our dedicated pharmacy. Other conditions may require surgical intervention, such as the placement of a stent (to keep open a blocked coronary artery) or a pacemaker, which can be arranged elsewhere by your consultant.
One of the major benefits of seeing us privately at BMI Ridgeway is that all appointments are consultant-led and consultant delivered. This means when you choose your consultant, you will see them face to face for a personalised full service, ensuring high quality care is delivered at all times.
Echocardiogram (ultrasound scan of the heart)
Ambulatory Heart Monitoring
CT Coronary Angiogram (dye injection through a catheter to highlight blocked arteries)
Once all results are back, your consultant will be able to make a confirmed diagnosis, and they will see you for a follow-up appointment in order to discuss the findings, allowing them to explain your condition to you and outline potential treatment plans.
If medication is required, you can pick up any necessary prescription at our on-site pharmacy, allowing you to get started on treatment right away. If more invasive measures are needed, such as surgery, your consultant can discuss your options with you and help you prepare.
