Cardiology services

  • Chest pain
  • Arrhythmia; the disturbance of a normal heart rhythm
  • Heart failure; the heart failing to pump enough blood around the body at the right pressure

Patients can expect receive on-going care and support from clinicians to help manage their heart condition.

A third of cardiology patients arrive through the Trust’s accident and emergency department.  Emergency care is given to patients following a heart attack or other heart-related conditions.  Following admission inpatients receive comprehensive and specialist care on our hospital wards.

Rehabilitation is a crucial part of living with a heart condition and specialist nurses at the Trust work with patients to get them back on their feet.  The cardiac rehabilitation team provide a long-term programme and on-going support to cardiac patients after they have been discharged.


The cardiology department offer invasive and non-invasive diagnostic procedures.  Other treatments and procedures include:

  • Angiolplasty
