The cardiology service provides diagnosis and treatment of all heart complaints.

Our cardiology service provides outpatient, inpatient and community care. There are two coronary care units at our hospitals in North Tyneside and Wansbeck which look after the sickest patients, these hospitals also have dedicated cardiology wards. We look after patients with atrial fibrillation, angina, heart attacks, heart failure, palpitations, dizziness and blackouts, breathlessness and high blood pressure.  
 
Our community teams provide support to patients at home in managing their heart failure and always work to treat patients in their homes as much as possible. 
 
Our rehabilitation programme allows patients to recover their confidence and improve their physical activity after a heart attack or cardiac operation. 

Clinics run at 

Outpatient clinics are run at Hexham, North Tyneside and Wansbeck hospitals, our outpatient centre at Wallsend and our community hospitals at Alnwick and Berwick. There are specilaised nurse-led clinics for patients who have had a heart attack, have heart failure or new onset chest pain.
