Here at Manchester Cardiology Services, our patients care and wellbeing is our priority. From the initial consultation, through to investigations and treatment, we are there with you every step of the way.
Once you have been referred <link to referrals page>in to our care, your cardiology specialist will begin with an initial consultation in order to gain a better understanding of your medical history. They will also examine you, which will help determine which tests would be most beneficial to use during the assessment period in order to reach a diagnosis of your condition. There is no standard series of tests and investigations, as a whole host of factors must be taken in to account which will vary from one individual to the next.
Most of the tests used in modern cardiology medicine are non-invasive and can be carried out in an out-patient setting, meaning minimal disruption to our patients, and their families, lives.
Although typically non-invasive tests are used, there are some conditions where more invasive testing procedures are necessary and you may need to be admitted into hospital. Your consultant will discuss these procedures with you in detail, including recovery times and any potential associated risks.
Once a diagnosis has been established, your consultant will recommend specialist treatment to you, which will be tailored specifically for your personal needs at all times.
