The heart is the engine of our bodies, pumping nutrient and oxygen rich blood to every cell. But the constant demand we make on it can take its toll and lead to disease.

We offer fast access to a wide range of procedures from:

  • tests and scans to help investigate and diagnose illness
  • to treatments and surgery for more complex heart-related conditions

Whether it is chest pain concerns, high blood pressure, arrhythmia or heart disease, our dedicated, specialist cardiology teams are here to help keep your heart running as it should.

Your heart is in our hands and to us, there is no greater trust. Making a positive difference to our patients’ lives through outstanding personalised care is at the heart of everything we do.

Is heart surgery and treatment for you?

Heart problems can affect anyone at almost any age. They can be caused by a natural defect, genes or an unhealthy lifestyle. For many people, heart surgery provides relief from symptoms such as breathlessness and a lack of energy – giving them the chance to enjoy a fuller life. We provide the highest quality specialist care – from the first moment you are in touch with us through to the completion of your treatment and aftercare. Whether you use private medical insurance or you’re paying for treatment yourself, we provide expert heart care for everyone.
