We aim to provide a comprehensive, efficient service committed to excellence for our patients. To facilitate this we have dedicated sessions specifically for the type of echo required, with pre-booked appointment times. To assist us in providing the best possible service to our patients, we ask that you provide as much relevant clinical information as possible.
If there is a particular concern regarding a patient's echo, or if an echo is required urgently, please visit the department to discuss this with our echocardiographers. As far as possible, we will try to facilitate these requests. Once a patient has an echo, the report is accessible online shortly afterwards. If there is anything you would like to discuss regarding the report, please contact any of our echocardiography specialists.
