Cardiology

About

Our cardiology service uses cutting-edge clinical innovations to treat and prevent heart conditions and offers a full range of investigations, treatments and management for cardiac conditions. We also provide cardiac assessment and treatment for pregnant women and patients with end-stage kidney disease. We offer services at Hammersmith, St Mary’s and Charing Cross hospitals.

Our cardiology service at Hammersmith Hospital is one of London’s eight heart attack centres, providing specialist 24-hour emergency care and treatment for anyone suspected of having a heart attack in the west London area.

General cardiology outpatient clinics at Hammersmith Hospital are held three days per week with sub specialty clinics for heart failure and complex arrhythmias. All clinics are supported by a cardiac physiological measurement service, providing a one-stop service for patients.

Charing Cross Hospital runs a unique rapid access cardiology clinic each weekday morning and treats patients with chest pain, suspected heart failure or arrhythmia.

Clinical trials and research

We are at the forefront of cardiac interventions including percutaneous heart valve treatments, innovations in electrophysiology, new forms of cardiac imaging and the investigation of syncope. The International Centre for Circulatory Health (ICCH) at St Mary’s Hospital facilitates the translation of cutting-edge cardiovascular discoveries to patient care. This enables us to offer the latest new treatments to our patients as early as possible. ICCH is a collaborative venture between the Trust and the National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College London.

The treatment was absolutely amazing. Every member of staff who helped me was kind and conscientious. The teamworking was really special and I found myself feeling very confident in the way I was treated. Very grateful to everyone for their assistance.

I can't praise the department more highly – the care I received could not have been bettered. The nursing staff, doctors and surgeons carried out their tasks and I was able to go home the same day with no problems. Thanks to all the staff of the department, they are great.
