We provide inpatient care on a 12 bed Coronary Care Unit and 10 beds on a medical ward. We are supplemented by a team of Specialist Nurses who undertake nurse led clinics, look after ACS (heart attack) patients, heart failure care, provide cardiac rehabilitation and look after arrhythmias patients. We also offer a cardiac rehabilitation clinic and exercise service and recently introduced a new Cardiac Catheterisation Laboratory Service.

We currently have a full complement of support services including an excellent Cardio Respiratory Department with state of the art echocardiogram machines, Holter recorders, respiratory function testing and magnetic resonance imaging of the cardiovascular system. Cardiac imaging is further supported by cardiac CT coronary angiography and cardiac MR imaging.  

We also have a Cardiac Catheterisation Laboratory Service situated within the Radiology department, which allows the Cardiology department to perform coronary angiograms and cardiac catheterisation, as a day procedure.

The angiograms performed will help in the planning and management of patients treated for such conditions as angina, heart attack, heart failure and palpitations. The laboratory will be shared with interventional radiologists and will also be used for cardiac work, including the implantation of advanced pacing devices, four sessions a week.

The Cardiac Catheterisation Laboratory service can be contacted for further information on 024 7686 5400.
