The acute cardiology unit cares for patients with cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel) and endocrine (hormone) diseases.
The clinic offers specialist assessment for patients who present to their unit with
symptoms suggesting recent onset angina. We aim to investigate patients quickly so we can tell them if their chest pain is non-cardiac in origin. The clinic is run by a registered advanced nurse practitioner (RANP). It is supported by consultant cardiologist and by cardiac physiologists who perform many of the cardiac tests.
