So if you are concerned about your heart health, you will be looking for prompt, expert investigations and diagnosis, and that is exactly what you will receive at Spire Leicester Hospital.
The aim of the heart assessment clinic is to highlight where there is an increased risk of developing heart disease. The assessment also plays an important role in the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease by performing clinical tests and proceeding with a realistic individualised action plan.
