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.
