In addition, our clinic is easily reachable by car or public transport from anywhere in the Northwest if you need to visit us.
You don’t have to have an NHS referral to make an appointment. We have a variety of services and affordable price packages available, so you can get the answers and support you need as fast as possible. We have self-pay packages that allow you to arrange clinical consultations, risk assessments for heart conditions and annual membership options for ongoing services from the clinic. You can also set up cardiology tests for specific conditions or ask for tailored service packages. Once you’ve have your initial consultation, our team will show you which package best suits your needs.
We know that a cardiac diagnosis is a stressful and challenging experience. So we will help you through all of our diagnostic cardiology tests, such as an echocardiogram test, CT scans and respiratory testing, to give you accurate and fast results with the latest imagining technology. With our centre housing private ECG machines, you can usually get the test results immediately after the appointment or in the days immediately following your appointment. This means you can get the correct diagnosis and care for potential conditions without delay.
Who needs Cardiology test?
Patients who have recently had a heart bypass operation can experience difficulty getting back to the things they love. So whether you used to train regularly, want to get back into sports or need support with their recovery, we can advise you on a risk reduction programme with nutritional and exercise advice. The same goes for those who need a preoperative diagnosis for bypass surgery; you aren’t alone. So you can be sure that you will receive the best care for your heart and health.
You can schedule a video or an in-person appointment where a consultant cardiologist will discuss your symptoms and concerns. They will then ask you to share any family history or lifestyle influences related to your condition so they can work with you to establish a prognosis. From there, you will receive a thorough and tailored plan of action. Finally, you can take this plan back to your regular GP or hospital. We can advise, and support should the need arise so that you get the best care possible.
Consider booking with us now to get your first consultation at our cardiac diagnosis centre. We will provide tests for heart disease and an assessment or risk reduction plan that comes directly from the best private cardiologists in the Northwest.

How to book
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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.
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.
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.
In most cases the cardiologists will be able to give you the results immediately after the appointment or the next day.
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.
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.
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.
