If you have a heart condition we may look after you in one of our hospitals or through one of our dedicated community teams.
The types of conditions we look after include atrial fibrilation, angina, heart attacks, heart failure, palpitations, dizziness and blackouts, breathlessness and high blood pressure.
We have dedicated cardiology wards at Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital and Wansbeck and North Tyneside general hospitals. If we need to see you for ongoing care you may come into one of our outpatient clinics at one of these general hospitals or at Hexham, in addition to Alnwick or Berwick infirmaries.
If you have had a heart attack, have heart failure or recently experiencing chest pain we may ask you to come into one of our specialised nurse-led clinics.
One of the largest cardiology departments in the North East
We aim to treat people in their homes as much as possible and our community teams can support patients managing heart failure at home.
A unique service that is provided at home as well as in hospital
It’s important to gain confidence and improve physical activity after a heart attack or cardiac operation and we have a rehabilitation programme which supports patients with this.
A strong history of bringing specialist cardiological procedures closer to patients’ homes
Where appropriate you may be asked to attend a consultation online via a video call.
Rather than travelling to your appointment, you go into the clinic’s online ‘waiting area’. We will be notified when you arrive and your clinician will join you when ready
You don’t need to set up an account and no information you enter is stored.
