Heart - Cardiology

COVID-19 service update: normal service. We are contacting patients by video or phone call where possible.

Heart failure service – home visits and clinic appointments will be arranged if required.

We provide assessment and care for people with potential heart-related problems such as chest pain, palpitations, black-outs and breathlessness.

Our cardiologists also support patients with known heart conditions such as angina, heart rhythm problems, heart valve problems, cardiomyopathy and congenital heart defects.

Cardiology services are available at community hospitals and clinics across Dorset. We offer ultrasound scans and heart rhythm monitors, with or without consultations. We can also assess patients with chest pain by exercising them on a treadmill.

If you or your loved one would like to access these services, please speak to your GP.
