There are 7.6 million people living with heart or circulatory disease in the UK. Unfortunately, for many people suffering from these conditions, they go undetected.

If you are experiencing symptoms relating to your heart and want answers quickly, then our Rapid Cardiac Assessment service is for you. Within two days of contacting us, you can have a bespoke set of tests and heart scans arranged that will provide a detailed analysis of your heart which you can then talk through with our private cardiologists, getting the reassurance or treatment plan you need quickly.

Alternatively, if you don't have any symptoms and would just like a routine private heart check up, then you can use our Healthy Heart Assessment service.

Should further tests or treatment be needed, our expert Cardiologists and Cardiac Nurses, and our Interventional Cardiology Suite provide a one stop cardiac service, giving you peace of mind.

Why Athletes Should Get Their Hearts Checked

Private Cardiologist Consultant Dr Winston Martin, and Maidstone United Club Captain George Elokobi, discuss the benefits of athletes having their hearts checked.


" What an absolutely first-rate service. The whole service worked incredibly well - I had my triage call on the Monday and by the Thursday I had had all my tests, seen the consultant and knew exactly what treatment I needed. I would recommend it to anyone who has a heart problem. "
