A brand new service for people with heart conditions is set to bring a range of benefits to the local community.

A brand new service for people with heart conditions is set to bring a range of benefits to the local community.

West Middlesex University Hospital is expanding its existing cardiology service so that patients, as well as their family and friends, will no longer need to travel to other hospitals for diagnosis and treatment of common heart conditions.

Consultant Cardiologist, Dr Julian Collinson said: “This investment in cardiac services helps meet a key health need within the local population and will provide better outcomes and experience for our patients.”

The first phase of the new service, which will be providing cardiac diagnostic tests, will open in late September this year. The second phase will be up and running by early 2017 and will bring a full cardiac interventional treatment service.

Commenting on how this new service enhancement will improve patients’ experience, Consultant Cardiologist, Dr Sadia Khan said: “Currently it is necessary to refer some of our patients to neighbouring hospitals for specialist diagnosis and treatment. With these exciting new developments we will be able to offer a full diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation service at West Middlesex University Hospital.”
