Cardiac services move to Barts 

01/05/2015 00:00 
Improved cancer and cardiac care for millions of people across north and east London and west Essex moved a step closer this week with the transfer of cardiac services from UCLH to the Barts Heart Centre at St Bartholomew’s Hospital.

The dedicated new centre at Barts will mean that specialist care is concentrated in one service. 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.

UCLH will continue to provide general cardiology services to local people, with specialist cases referred to Barts as needed. More information is available here.

The Heart Hospital will be refurbished and reopen at the beginning of the summer to provide thoracic and urology services. Thoracic surgery, which has always been based at the Heart Hospital, will continue to be provided from the site, after moving out to The London Clinic for a period of eight weeks (6 May -28 June 2015).

If you are a patient and have any questions about your appointment please call:

For Barts Heart Centre appointments please call: 020 7377 7000

For UCLH appointments please call the Cardiology Pathway Supervisor on 020 3447 7584.
