Our private services are priced to be accessible for those who may wish to self-refer to be seen quickly, or would not otherwise qualify in traditional referral pathways.
An Electrocardiogram (12 lead ECG) is a test involving a series of stickers being attached to you your chest with sensors that look at your heart rhythm and electrical activity.
A wearable, portable device that provides a continuous ECG, which is analysed to form a Holter Report. These look at rhythm and electrical activity over an extended period of time.
Our specialist cardiac physiologists can perform an ultrasound scan of the heart to assess structure and function, using the latest scanning technology. A detailed ‘echo’ report summarises all of the findings.

During this conversation, they will be able to interpret the results within the context of your medical history and lifestyle.
