Cardiology at Leeds Hospital

Nuffield Health Leeds Hospital offers dedicated cardiology services for the assessment and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Our range of diagnostic investigations and interventional procedures includes:

  • Echocardiography (Echo) – provides information about heart structure and mechanical function.
  • Stress testing - a test used in medicine and cardiology to measure the heart's ability to respond to external stress in a controlled clinical environment.
  • 24 hour ECG analysis.
  • Chest X-ray – examines heart, lungs & chest walls.
  • Implantable pacemakers – controls the heart’s rhythm when it beats too slowly.
  • Coronary angiography (also known as cardiac catheterisation) – gives information about the blood pressure inside your heart and how well its pumping chambers and valves are working.
  • Coronary angioplasty/coronary stenting (also known as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)) – uses a small balloon to ‘squash’ the fatty tissue in the narrowed artery, allowing blood to flow more easily.
