Direct access diagnostic clinic

We offer quick and simple access to a known out-patient diagnostic test when referred directly by your GP.

Some patients require quick and simple access to a known out-patient diagnostic test. At South Wales Heart Centre there are some tests which are suitable for patients to be referred directly from their GP. Whilst these clinics will not provide access to a consultation, they do enable patients and their GP’s rapid access to diagnostic testing and results.

What tests are directly accessible?

We have four cardiac diagnostic tests that are available for rapid access. These include:

Echocardiography (supported by consultant cardiologists Dr Navroz Masani and Dr Richard Wheeler)

24 hour blood pressure monitoring

Cardiac MRI (supported by Dr Andrew Wood)
