E-booking is a new service where medical consultation and some of our tests can most conveniently be scheduled by patients using the internet.
For self funding patients or those issued with coupons, e-booking offers significant cost savings as well as the convenience of being able to schedule and reschedule the appointment upto 24 hours prior to the booking.
E-booking is not suitable for all comers: it can only be offered for follow up Consultations (those patients that have been previously assessed by a Cardiology service as an NHS or private patient), requires internet access, a personal email address and further registration with our service provider (bookingbug.com).

Three types of Consultation can be scheduled on-line:
- Outpatient consultation at the Surrey Cardiovascular Clinic 5 Huxley Road GU2 7RE (near the Guildford Nuffield Hospital).
- Phone consultation - 5-10 minutes when booked online, suitable for existing patients who have joined QRx (on line records) at the Surrey Cardiovascular Clinic - useful for example to discuss a result or where a medical problem has developed and there is uncertainty about what to do next.
- E-consultation may be suitable for our registered patients who have joined QRx (on line records) at the Surrey Cardiovascular Clinic or those given QRX Coupons by their consultant for questions/queries that can be answered by the Consultant direct using a chat window, where no letter is required. E-Consultation may be the most cost and time effective way to discuss a result or where a medical problem has developed and there is uncertainty about what to do next.
Some of our in house tests can also be booked on line:
- 12 Lead ECG
- Bronze Health Screen (ECG and Nurse assessment)
- Screening Echocardiogram
- Full Echocardiogram
For further information, please call 01483 467100 or Email firstname.lastname@example.org for clarification on tests before booking if tests are deemed necessary.
GP and Physician referrals..
Doctors can refer their patient's for any of the E-booking tests with a referral letter or our encrypted digital medical referral form however these products may also be booked and arranged by the patient themself.
E-Bookings are all self-referral services that can be requested by a patient without a GP or Physician referral.
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 pain on effort, heart failure, palpitation or blackouts you should consider being referred by your GP to a Consultant Cardiologist for a formal Consultation and medical examination.
