Cardiology

 

The Parkside Suite offers eight consultant cardiologists who cover a wide range of sub-specialties and clinical interests, dedicated to delivering the highest possible standards of care. As a private patient, you will be seen by a dedicated consultant who will personally manage your treatment, allowing you to benefit from their wealth of knowledge and experience.

 

Our consultant cardiologists are:

  • Dr Vinod Achan
  • Dr Tuan Peng Chua
  • Dr Peter Clarkson
  • Dr Matthew Faircloth
  • Dr Ed Leatham
  • Dr Mark Norman
  • Dr Sudhir Rathore
  • Dr Joanne Shannon

The Parkside Suite has dedicated cardiac monitoring beds, so all private cardiology patients can be immediately transferred post-operatively to the Parkside Suite and then monitored by the Draeger Cardiac monitoring equipment in each en-suite bedroom. In the Parkside Suite you’ll also be cared for by specially trained cardiac nurses and, in the rare event of an emergency, will have access to the onsite 24/7 cardiac catheter lab. The Parkside Suite is the only hospital in the area that offers this level of private cardiology patient care. 

 

The range of cardiology services currently offered are:

  • Diagnosis and management - chest pain/angina, breathlessness, dizzyness, atrial fibrillation, hypertension, ischaemic heart disease and heart failure
  • Investigations - cardiac risk factors, ECGs, echocardiograms, exercise tolerance tests, 24hr/48hr/7 day ECG monitoring and 24hr blood pressure monitoring
