Demand for clinical diagnostic echocardiography has never been higher, and we are proud to be a trusted provider for the NHS. We work closely with local healthcare organisations, both NHS and private, to provide a quality community echocardiography service and improve waiting times for patients across Devon & Cornwall.


Need an echocardiogram for your patient?

The demand for clinical diagnostic echocardiography has never been higher. NICE guidelines for the community provision and management of cardiac disease have underlined the need for robust echo services.

The traditional approach of sending patients to hospital settings for diagnostic tests, such as echocardiograms, is changing. Many hospitals are unable to provide this direct service, or have their own large outpatient demand and waiting lists…..not to mention the demand for their inpatient services too. Other private organisations may only offer their services to private patients who are being reviewed by their consultants or can only offer a limited service in a single location.

Ultracardiac offers a patient-centred service, with accessibility and quality at the core of every decision we make. We have a large, dynamic workforce, spread across the South West which allows us to run clinics in locations closer to the patients’ homes. All of our echocardiographers are BSE (British Society of Echocardiography) accredited, and we use the latest technology for scanning and reporting. Our results are produced and sent back electronically to referring clinicians promptly, and our cloud-based reporting solution means any clinician involved in the patient’s care can be given access to the images without the need for direct PACS integration.
