Welcome to the Southampton Heart Service
Spire Southampton Hospital is Hampshire’s largest private hospital and offers high quality services for the diagnosis and treatment of heart conditions to patients throughout Hampshire, Dorset, the Isle of Wight, the south coast and the Channel Islands. We provide cardiac services to insured, self-pay and some NHS patients and specialise in both adult and children’s cardiology and adult cardiac surgery. Our cardiac service has world class outcomes and this has been recognised with two independent healthcare award nominations in the last two years.
Our consulting rooms and dedicated suite for cardiac investigations include state-of-the-art 2D and 3D cardiac ultrasound (echocardiography), ECG and blood pressure (ambulatory monitoring) and exercise testing facilities. We also provide transesophageal (TOE) and stress echocardiography.
There are comprehensive facilities for the follow up of implantable loop recorders, pacemakers, implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICD) and cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) devices. Remote monitoring and follow-up of implanted devices is also available at this hospital.
We have an interventional catheter lab and electrophysiology suite where a wide range of cardiac procedures, such as coronary angiography, device implants, atrial fibrillation ablation, left atrial appendage occlusion and patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure are performed. The lab team consists of highly trained and experienced specialist staff.
There are five operating theatres, four with laminar flow which allows surgery to be carried out in the cleanest possible environment. We also have a fully equipped and staffed Critical Care Department (including a level 3 Intensive Care Unit) for cardiac surgery and back up services for other complex cardiac procedures.
At Spire Southampton Hospital our cardiac specialists have a range of interests, including:
- cardiac rhythm management
- cardiac surgery
- congenital heart disease
- coronary intervention
- general cardiology
- heart failure
Whether you require an investigation into chest pain, have a disturbance in your heart rhythm (an arrhythmia) or any other heart condition, we have a heart specialist that can help.
