Venturi cardiology has a welcoming, professional cardiology clinic in Cheshire, helping Cheshire-based patients access the cardiology tests and care they need as quickly as possible.
We offer our patients access to a comfortable, state-of-the-art facility with the best private cardiologists. So whether you need cardiology tests like an echocardiogram, a private ECG, access to an angina diagnosis centre or other tests for heart disease, we’re proud to deliver an exceptional level of care to patients in and around Cheshire.
If you’re based in Cheshire and have a family history of heart disease, symptoms of a heart condition, or you’re worried about your heart health in general, cardiology tests may offer you some peace of mind.
Cardiology tests for heart disease are usually minimally invasive, and they can provide you with essential and often life-changing information about your health and well-being. Tests for heart disease can include:
- Private ECG
- Echocardiogram test
- Exercise stress tests
- Point of care blood tests
- Coronary angiography
- Calcium score test
At Venturi, cardiology tests are performed by some of the best private cardiologists in Cheshire and the UK. Our echocardiogram tests and private ECG’s can check your heart rhythm and determine how well your heart is pumping blood around your body. This information can help to diagnose a range of heart conditions.
What can cardiology tests tell me?
Tests for heart disease and other cardiology tests can determine whether you’re suffering from heart disease or if you’re at risk of developing the disease in the future. They can also diagnose other heart conditions like angina, arrhythmias or heart failure. Tests for heart disease at our Cheshire-based cardiac diagnosis centre can also give you a preoperative diagnosis for bypass surgery if necessary, and we’ll help refer you to an NHS or private surgeon in Cheshire to perform that surgery.
Do I need insurance for a private ECG?
No, you don’t. Here at Venturi, we welcome NHS and self-funded patients from in and around Cheshire. We can even offer video consultations for patients who don’t want to travel. Our payment packages vary in price and are suitable for any patient of any age. Whatever your financial situation, and whether you have insurance or not, our cardiac diagnosis centre and angina diagnosis centre can perform a range of cardiology tests focused on offering preventative care to those seeking reassurance and professional advice.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need to prepare for my appointment?
There is no specific preparation unless you are given different instructions when you make your booking. However, we wouldn’t recommend drinking coffee or caffeinated drinks ahead of your appointment as if you go on to have diagnostic tests this can speed up your heart rate.
What will happen at my first consultation?
At your first consultation, regardless of whether it is virtual or in person, you will meet with a consultant cardiologist and discuss your symptoms and concerns. Then you will be asked a series of questions about your lifestyle and family history. We will then recommend next steps. If you prefer you can take this recommendation (in the form of a letter or PDF) back to your GP or hospital and request to have the tests carried out on the NHS. Or if you would prefer, we can carry out any tests here at the clinic, often on the same day as your consultation or very soon afterwards.
What should I wear for my consultation?
For your first consultation please feel free to wear whatever is comfortable for you. However, as we may go on to carry out tests, in some cases, directly after the consultation, it is advisable to wear something loose fitting. For some of the diagnostic tests we might ask you to get changed and put on a hospital gown whilst we are taking the test. We have changing rooms on site.
When will I get the results of my tests?
In most cases the cardiologists will be able to give you the results immediately after the appointment or the next day.
What will happen after my consultation?
After the consultation you will be given a bespoke treatment plan for you to either take back to your GP or into hospital or we can carry out further diagnostics right here in the clinic – often immediately after the appointment if that is your preference. Our doctors are very happy to liaise directly with your GP or other care providers if there is anything else they need to know.
I've booked an appointment online but don't know which service or package to select?
Don’t worry, when you come down for the initial consultation, we will be able to advise you as to which package / service would be suitable for you. This can be offered on the day immediately following your clinical consultation. Or, if you choose, we can refer you back into NHS services or advise your GP accordingly.
Will my medical insurance cover the cost of the consultation or test?
If you have medical insurance you would need to contact your insurer to pre-authorise any appointments with us. We are more than happy to help answer any questions you may have regarding insurance cover, please get in touch on 01925 748245 to speak to one of the Venturi team.
