Private Cardiac Diagnosis and Treatment At Sancta Maria Hospital.

Cardiovascular (heart and circulatory) disease causes more than a quarter of all deaths in the UK – an average of 425 people die each day from the disease, that is one every three minutes. Coronary heart disease is the most common cause of premature death in the UK with 1 in 7 men and 1 in 10 women dying from the disease. Those statistics can of course be changed by the early detection and treatment of coronary heart disease and its risk factors. Symptoms of heart disease may include chest pain, shortness of breath, leg swelling, fatigue, palpitations (awareness of the heart beating unusually), dizzy spells and alteration or loss of consciousness.

At Sancta Maria Hospital, we provide a dedicated private cardiology service that deals with the investigation, diagnosis, and medical treatment of disorders of the heart and blood vessels as well as identification and treatment of important risk factors such as hypertension (high blood pressure) and lipid abnormalities (high cholesterol).

The heart and supporting anatomy are a complex and vital system for life and as such has a broad range of conditions that require management and treatment. The experienced cardiologists at Sancta Maria Hospital each have their own sub-specialisations, and so we can offer you the right specialist for your specific needs.

We provide a comprehensive range of non-invasive diagnostic tests for diagnosing and treating all heart conditions within our outpatient facilities carried out by experienced consultant cardiologists and cardiac physiologists. Patients will benefit from fast, direct and convenient appointments where consultant cardiologists can accurately diagnose and provide the necessary tailored care to help you manage your condition.

Common diagnostic procedures performed at Sancta Maria Hospital Include:

  • ECG
  • Echocardiogram
  • 24-hour to 7-day ECG monitoring
  • 24-hour Blood pressure monitoring
  • Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • Implantable loop recorder devices

Other Specialist Investigations performed by our team at local specialist centres include

  • Cardiac CT angiography for non-invasive imaging of the coronary arteries, aorta and other cardiac structures.
  • Myocardial Perfusion imaging, using low dose radiotracers to investigate the blood flow to the heart
  • Cardiac Catheterisation – Use of a specialist X-Ray machine and a long, thin, flexible tube inserted via a blood vessel in the arm or groin to get real-time detailed images of the coronary arteries, heart and major blood vessels as well as make important pressure readings within the heart and circulation.

“Can not fault this hospital one bit. All of the staff were so lovely nothing was too much trouble. Very reassuring and caring which made me feel very much at ease, I didn’t want to come home! They all do such an amazing job and I’m very thankful for everything.”

Jade Baker

“Just had a total knee replacement at this fabulous hospital. From the moment you walk through the door you feel at ease. Everyone was so kind and caring. I was very nervous before my operation, but was soon assured everything would be fine. Thank you to all of you I met over my 4 day stay xx.”

Margaret Dawson

“I was very nervous and stressed before my treatment but all the staff went above and beyond to calm me down and reassure me. I was well informed and was made to feel like a person not just another number. The room I was in was spotlessly clean, not too hot and smelled fresh and not “hospitally”. The staff were very efficient and thorough.”

Leanne Helm

“I was discharged last night following an operation on my ankle. All of the staff where polite and extremely attentive. The room was cosy and clean. Every need was catered for. I was really dreading my operation the staff managed to make my stay very pleasant. Best hospital I’ve ever been in and would highly recommend to anyone. Excellent.”

Mark Goodlad

“Lovey staff, consultants too and such a good atmosphere. Can’t fault it at all”
