Paediatric cardiology

We offer inpatient and outpatient services for the diagnosis and management of heart conditions for infants, children and young adults in conjunction with the Evelina London Children's Hospital (opens in a new window) and the Royal Brompton Hospital.

We work closely with these cardiac centres for children with congenital heart disease - from birth through to planning for any interventions or surgery and follow-up in specialist paediatric cardiology outpatient clinics.

We have on-site digital paediatric echocardiography (an ultrasound of the heart) and access to other non-invasive investigations, including electrocardiogram (ECG), blood pressure and oxygen saturation monitoring, exercise testing, tilt testing, ambulatory ECG and cardiac event recording.
