Conventional medical practice often involves several trips to the clinic or hospital. The first is for consultation following which the Consultant may request various investigations over a few weeks. A second consultation is then required to discuss results.
Our one stop clinics are designed to provide a more efficient service since the initial consultation and tests are combined in one visit, often allowing the diagnosis, tests and consultant review in one visit saving time and resources.
Even if some of the tests are required over a few weeks we can often use a phone Consultation to discuss results if needed.
GP and Physician referrals..
Doctors can refer their patient's for specialist consultation with a standard referral letter posted to us at 5 Huxley Road Guildford GU2 7RE or Faxed to us at +44 1483 467120 or using our encrypted digital medical referral form.
Due to the nature of our diagnostic services only some of our tests can be accessed by patients direct.
- 12 Lead ECG
- Screening Echocardiogram
- Breathless screening (ECG, BNP D Dimer blood test)
- Racing Driver Exercise Test
- In general self referrals are confined to healthscreens that can be arranged 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 the patient has symptoms of chest pain on effort, heart failure, palpitation or blackouts they should be considered for referral to a Consultant Cardiologist for a formal Consultation and medical examination.
To book a heart screen ask your patient to call us during office hours or to complete our contact form using the button below.
Hearscreen Bronze and some other tests can also be scheduled on line see our e-bookings page.
