The Cardiac Unit at the Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth prides itself on offering the very highest quality service to patients using the latest techniques and technology, and is supported by some of the country’s leading Cardiologists.
Hospital visits can be stressful and with our relaxed and comfortable surroundings, we recognise the importance of putting our patients at ease. Our team of Cardiologists and Cardiac Physiologists achieve this with a calm caring approach, with unparalleled levels of patient care.
We offer a wide range of non-invasive diagnostic cardiac testing with all tests reported by a Consultant Cardiologist. Same day appointments are often available and we aim to offer a 24 hour turn around for reports.
