What Will Happen At My Appointment?

Please download one of our patient information leaflets which explain in detail what you can expect during your appointment with the community cardiology service.

Cardiology doctor appointment

Echo clinic appointment


If you have a monitor clinic appointment please download the relevant monitor leaflet:

Blood pressure monitor

24hr ECG monitor

R Test monitor

IMPORTANT: when returning 24hr ECG monitors please remove the device (be sure to unclip ECG monitor leads from the sticky electrodes DO NOT cut or pull/damage the leads - these are expensive to replace). Place all of the equipment in the bag provided and return as instructed with the completed diary sheet by 14:00 the day after your appointment. If you are wearing the monitor for 48 or 72hrs you will be instructed when to return the device.
