London Medical’s Cardiology Clinic provides the most up-to-date investigative cardiac procedures for patients with heart problems – and some of the UK’s most renowned cardiologists hold clinics here for all aspects of heart disease.
These clinics are supported by our team of experienced and dedicated cardiac nurses, ultrasound specialists, and physiology technicians, who carry out non-invasive cardiac procedures. These range from routine ECG recording, to treadmill exercise stress tests, echocardiography, ambulatory blood pressure monitoring using the latest technology, and miniaturised ambulatory ECG recorders.
How we can help
Immediate bedside testing services include:
- Bedside troponin T blood test to exclude heart attack
