PATIENTS will be able to get their hearts tested in Hounslow without visiting hospital under a new pilot scheme.

The Heart of Hounslow health centre, in Bath Road, is trialling a weekly cardiology clinic, where patients can see consultants, have treatment and be tested without taking a trip to West Middlesex or Ashford Hospital.

NHS Hounslow chief executive Nick Relph said: “We are proud to add comprehensive cardiology to the services at The Heart of Hounslow polyclinic.

“The cardiology service adds one more service to the wider range of treatments, closer to patients’ homes for more hours on week days and at weekends.”

The three month pilot will involve 10 to 12 patients being seen every Tuesday afternoon by a team of cardiologists from Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals in Surrey.
