Heart care

Our cardiac team treats disorders of the heart and blood vessels, such as heart disease and cardiovascular disease.


Our cardiac service is one of the most comprehensive in private healthcare, offering world-leading cardiology services.

We treat and diagnose heart rhythm problems, and all conditions related to the coronary arteries and heart valves.

Our consultant cardiologists and cardiac surgeons have trained at London's top teaching hospitals, sub-specialising in complex areas of heart medicine. They can carry out a range of non-invasive, surgical and interventional treatments.

So whether you need a diagnosis, surgery or ongoing management, we provide personalised gold standard cardiac care.

Cardiologists and cardiac surgeons

Cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons play different and equally important roles in the care of a patient with heart disease. You may need treatment from both.

Cardiologists diagnose heart conditions and handle treatment or nonsurgical procedures like balloon angioplasty, coronary stents, ablation procedures or devices like pacemakers or defibrillators.

Cardiac surgeons carry out bypass surgery and surgical valve replacement procedures. After surgery, you will usually be referred back to a cardiologist.

Some of our newer procedures may involve both cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, such as TAVI or percutaneous valve replacement procedures.
