Our service

In this department we do many tests to provide doctors with information about your heart and lungs. The tests are non- invasive which means they are not performed in a theatre setting.

You will receive an appointment letter for any tests that you need.

The results will go back to the doctor that referred you.

We undertake the following tests:

  • Lung Function Test
  • Exercise Tolerance Test
  • Echocardiogram
  • ECG
  • 24hour tape/cardiocall
  • Pacing Follow Up

You may need tests in other departments such as:

  • X-rays
  • CT or MRI Scans
  • Blood tests
