Heart Hospital 

Services at the Heart Hospital are changing.

From 6 May, cardiac services will be provided by a new service at the Barts Heart Centre.

This is part of our plan to improve our patient care by combining the best of the cardiac services at the Heart Hospital and St Bartholomew’s Hospital into one centre.

The dedicated centre concentrates specialist services in larger numbers which improves outcomes and reduces complications – this can save even more lives a year by providing patients with world-class care at every stage - from prevention and diagnosis, through to treatment and rehabilitation.

The cardiology services provided from the University College Hospital building will continue and the following services provided:

  • Outpatient clinics including: General Cardiology, Heart Failure, Rapid Access Chest Pain and GUCH Maternity
  • A GUCH outreach clinic from September
  • A full complement of non-invasive diagnostic services including: 7 day inpatient cardiology and echo services, ECGs, ambulatory blood pressure clinic, 24 hour Holter exercise and exercise tolerance tests.
  • Haemoglobinopathy Cardiac Care Clinic
  • Cardiovascular Health and Rehabilitation

The cardiology support provided to the other UCLH Trust sites will be enhanced with increased diagnostic support and more cardiology ward rounds.

Thoracic surgery will continue to be provided by UCLH at the Heart Hospital. From 5 May to 28 June 2015, these services will be delivered from The London Clinic. This is to enable refurbishments work to take place at the hospital. A leaflet is available here.

At the end of June, thoracic surgery will return to the hospital.

We are also planning to move urology services from University College Hospital to the Heart Hospital. The service will be moved in a phased way, starting with inpatients in July and August 2015. We expect to complete the move by September 2015. The move is part of a UCLH wide plan to improve patient care.
