  • Inpatient and outpatient diagnostic tests and procedures
  • Echocardiagrams
  • Cardiac angiograms
  • Cardiac pacemakers
  • Cardioversions
  • Exercise tolerance tests
  • 24 hour tapes and cardiac event recorders
  • Rapid access chest pain service via the Emergency Department and GP referrals
  • Specialist nurse-led clinics
  • Cardiac Rehabilitation services

We work closely with  Basildon cardiothoracic centre and refer patients who require coronary artery stents and cardiac surgery to undergo procedures under their care.
