Kingsbridge Private Hospital is making it easier for you to take control of your cardiac health with our cardiology specialists.

Are you concerned about your cardiovascular health?

In Northern Ireland cardiovascular disease remains one of the most significant causes of death. In 2011 28% of all deaths were caused by cardiovascular disease, almost 4000 people. This figure was almost as high as deaths caused by cancer (29%).

 

Things you can do:

Certain behaviours have been shown to increase the risk for coronary heart disease. You can reduce your risk by doing the following:

  • Stop smoking – smokers are more than twice as likely to have a heart attack
  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Be physically active – even a short daily walk is beneficial
  • Moderate your alcohol consumption
  • Try to use relaxation techniques to reduce chronic stress

 

There are certain medical risk factors which require more intensive investigation and management.  

These include: 

  • Obesity
  • Raised cholesterol (LDH)
  • Raised blood pressure
  • Diabetes

 

We can offer you the opportunity to have your heart disease risk assessed in Belfast by our Cardiology Specialists. We have developed a Healthy Heart Assessment with our Consultant Cardiologists and cardiology team for those wishing to obtain an overall view of their cardiac health at our five star medical facilities in Belfast. This service includes an examination by Consultant Cardiology specialists, medical history, blood tests and cardiovascular risk assessment.

 

Alternatively you may choose to access each service at our private cardiology clinic in Belfast, on an individual basis. To compliment your cardiac consultation with our private cardiologist, we offer direct access to a comprehensive range of cardiac investigations, including:

  • Echocardiography is an ultrasound examination performed by our team of Clinical Physiologists providing accurate images of the heart muscle, chambers and the heart valves to aid the diagnosis of heart disease.
  • Treadmill or Exercise Stress testing is a diagnostic tool available at our clinic in Northern Ireland and is used to assess the presence of coronary artery disease or ECG and blood pressure response to exercise, and is offered as part of 3fivetwo cardiac services.
  • Cardiac CT is an imaging test that uses CT technology to visualise the heart anatomy, coronary circulation, and great vessels.
  • Cardiac Event monitoring is used to continuously monitor your heart rhythm over a time period of 24 hours or more and may help to correlate your symptoms and diagnose abnormal rhythms.
  • CT calcium scoring & CT cardiac angiography (if clinically indicated)

 

Other cardiology services at our clinic in Belfast include:

  • Pre-Participation Cardiac Sports Screening - Kingsbridge Private Hospital has been involved in cardiac risk assessment for the last 3 years in various areas of sport and commerce including screening of numerous IFA clubs for the UEFA licence.
  • Foetal & Paediatric Cardiology - our Private Antenatal Care packages routinely provides access to experienced Consultant Paediatric Cardiologists who will provide support, information and advice on treatment options to any family whose baby or child may have a heart condition. This service is also available as a standalone appointment.

At Kingsbridge Private Hospital we can treat and diagnose a variety of heart conditions in Belfast and offer a wide range of cardiac services. Contact us for more information.

"Amazing 5-star hospital.  Have had other surgery here before on my back.
Yesterday's was a neck disc replacement operation.  I would highly recommend this hospital like a hotel manner. Thanks again guys." Mr Phillips, Kingsbridge Patient
"As hospitals go this one is pretty amazing! Had surgery with Mr Molloy at the end of October and have another one the end of this month. Mr Molloy is a gentleman who puts you at ease right away and ensured my last procedure went smoothly! From start to finish all the hospital staff go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. The facilities are brilliant with the rooms spacious and modern to recover in. Keep up the good work!" Ms Roulston, Kingsbridge Patient
"Can’t praise Kingsbridge Private Hospital enough!! I had an operation a couple of weeks ago and I was so well looked after. My surgeon Mr Rashid was fantastic, and the nursing staff was also fabulous. I found they communicated very well to each other, so everyone knew when my meds were due, my allergies etc. They were so kind, so lovely, constantly checked to see how I was i.e. my temperature etc. The food was fabulous and the catering staff very helpful having had an operation were very happy to accommodate ... Thank you to all!" Ms Cheong, Kingsbridge Patient
"Currently just back from recovery on the ward. I have just had ACL reconstructive surgery on my left knee. What can I say? This place is brilliant. I arrived at 8.35am, taken to the ward at 8.45am (my admission time was 9am). Tended to by a lovely Nurse. Dr Roger Wilson spoke to me around 9.45am, in Theatre for 10am, recovery for 11.10am and now currently back on ward. These guys are awesome. From the consultant to anaesthetist to nurses to cater assistants. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much. I am so grateful to everyone at Kingsbridge for the service." Mr McNicholl, Kingsbridge Patient
"EXCELLENT - Had surgery today under the very caring Dr Stewart and her team. I cannot thank her enough for all she’s done for me over the past few months. Everything was explained to me in detail and all my care was considerate, professional and compassionate. Everyone I’ve met today has been beyond kind from Will the Anaesthetist, the Nurses and theatre staff, the catering staff - there has been no exception. Thank you all for taking care of me so well today - look forward to getting home tomorrow x" Mrs McAleavey, Kingsbridge Patient
