Providing the future in heart attack prevention, today

Heart attacks can affect men and women of all ages but if you have a family history of heart disease or have a heart condition yourself you may be feeling anxious about being at an increased risk. 

The Harley Street Clinic is proud to be the first and only private hospital to offer patients CaRi-Heart®, which has been developed to detect underlying risks of possible heart disease. Heart attacks occur when arteries become blocked and blood cannot reach the heart. The technology works by accurately measuring the amount of inflammation of blood vessels in and around the heart and identifying any arteries which are at an increased risk of becoming blocked or narrowed.

The results from our CaRi-Heart® analysis will show you you’re at an increased risk. For those patients who receive a troubling result, you will then be recommended to one of our cardiologists, to receive a personalised prevention and management plan.

Confidence in our care

We know it can be daunting to come into hospital, which is why we make everything as easy as possible.

If you’re concerned about your heart health, you should be able to access safe and effective care as soon as possible. We offer minimal waiting times at The Harley Street Clinic and we can even offer same day appointments in some cases. 

CaRi-Heart® is a non-invasive technology that we apply as part of a routine CT coronary angiogram. You can go home after your scan and once our consultants have analysed the findings you’ll receive your results in a matter of days, giving you peace of mind and the opportunity to put preventative measures in place if necessary.

 
Taking confidence in our care

Access to world renowned care

The Harley Street Clinic has a worldwide reputation for pioneering cardiac treatments and we work with some of the UK’s leading cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons. Situated within London’s famous medical district, we use latest generation scanners and diagnostic equipment, including low-dose radiation CT scanners, to ensure you’re getting a fast, clear and accurate diagnosis. If you need multiple tests, such as an MRI or an echocardiogram (ECG), we can usually arrange for them to be carried out on the same day.

If tests suggest further treatment is required, we provide a wide range of treatment options, from minimally invasive procedures to complex open heart surgery. Our multidisciplinary team of consultants, nurses, radiographers and pharmacists are on hand to support you, whatever care you may need. Should you require an inpatient stay, we have a dedicated cardiac ward that offers comfort, privacy and round-the-clock care.
