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.

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.

Cardiology scan

As an inpatient in the heart attack centre, I was incredibly impressed with what I saw and experienced. The medical professionals are not only highly skilled but also compassionate, caring and fun to be around. They turned what could have been a difficult and unpleasant situation into something pleasant and encouraging.

Cardiology scan

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.

Walter Lamb

From the moment of arrival staff did everything they could to put me at ease and I immediately got the feeling that I was in very good hands and had nothing to worry about. The consultant remained close at all times and was attended by two very competent assistants.
