What we do

The Cardiology Department provides a comprehensive cardiac service treating all aspects of adult acute and chronic heart disease. Cardiology is a branch of medicine which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of heart diseases. Cardiology includes diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology.

Cardiologists investigate patients with suspected heart disease by taking a very careful, extensive history of the patient's condition, and performing a complete physical examination. The cardiac department is supported by a full range of medical and surgical specialities.

The services we offer are:

  • Inpatient Surgery
  • Inpatient Emergency
  • Day Cases
  • Outpatients
  • Diagnostics
  • Catheter Laboratory (Royal Blackburn only)
