Heart Clinic

Patients with any form of ischaemic heart disease such as high blood pressure, heart attack, peripheral vascular disease or who have undergone coronary surgery are placed on our call and recall register for regular monitoring..

We monitor health through practice nurse clinics and by GP oversight. Our aim is to provide patients with the best possible advice and treatment in order to maximise quality of life and help prevent future problems

As part of our work, we monitor cholesterol levels, conduct urine and blood tests, review medication and provide lifestyle advice. Further details on our heart clinics can be obtained by contacting our reception. The following videos provide some useful background information from the British Heart Foundation.
