Welcome to One Stop Assessment and Diagnostic Clinic

This is a one stop clinic where tests to check the hearts function are performed. The results of the tests are reviewed by a variety of professionals, such as a GP with a specialist interest in Cardiology, a nurse with advanced knowledge and skills in cardiology as well as Consultant input.

If the tests confirm a diagnosis of heart failure further assessments will be performed and you will be able to discuss your diagnosis with a suitable clinician who will provide information and support regarding the treatments available to you and their benefits.

Questions from you and your family or carer are welcomed and our team will support you to monitor your symptoms and agree your treatment and  self management plans going forward.

Our team involve your GP and hospital consultants in decisions about your treatment plan.

If heart failure is not diagnosed, any other possible differential diagnosis will be discussed and you will be referred back to your GP for further management.
