Why HeartScreen +
Many heart conditions, such as Ischaemic heart disease, Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM), Dilated Cardiomyopathy, Hypertension, and Atrial Fibrillation are common and may cause no symptoms whatsoever for many years before presentation, so their detection requires screening.
Although all of our healthscreen+ tests may be organised through NHS via a GP referral to NHS Cardiologists for investigation of symptoms, it is increasingly difficult to offer sophisticated screening investigation under the NHS to people who are free of all symptoms.
Screening is the process of identifying disease or medical conditions in apparently healthy people. The reason for heart screening is that it allows detection of heart abnormalities early. This means information, further tests and treatment can be given to reduce their risk and any complications arising from the disease or condition in people whose heart abnormalities would have otherwise gone undetected.
SCVC specialise in cardiac conditions, so are well placed to offer screening for people that are worried they may have potentially dangerous heart conditions. If abnormalities are detected, SCVC can then offer information, further tests and appropriate treatment.
All our Heartscreen+ packages uniquely include a report and conclusion by one our cardiologists, who will review all of the information collected following the Heartscreen+.

Please note that our Heartscreen+ screening packages are designed for patients that have no clear symptoms of heart disease, so we would advise that if you have symptoms of chest symptoms on effort/stress, breathlessness, palpitation or blackouts you should consider being referred by your GP to a Consultant Cardiologist for a formal Consultation and medical examination.
