Welcome

The Heart Rhythm Clinic is a specialist centre in London, dedicated to the treatment of arrhythmias (heart rhythm conditions). The clinic brings together state-of-the-art technology with the expertise and experience of a highly specialist team of cardiologists and electrophysiologists from leading teaching hospitals, to diagnose, treat and monitor patients with a number of heart conditions and cardiovascular diseases. Our highly specialised team investigates and treats a range of conditions. These include; arrhythmias, strong or skipped heart beats, rapid palpitations, slow palpitations, fainting and dizzy spells, shortness of breath and fatigue, atrial fibrillation (AF), atrial flutter (AFL), supraventricular tachycardia (SVT),Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) Syndrome. The Heart Rhythm Clinic is part of HCA UK's comprehensive cardiac network, offering care, treatment and expertise.

Expertise

At HCA UK we have a comprehensive heart rhythm service, offering the latest and most innovative treatments.

  • Atrial fibrillation

    Need to know

    Atrial fibrillation is the commonmost sustained arrhythmia (an abnormal and irregular heart rhythm). It happens when the atria (the heart’s upper chambers) produces out-of-control electrical signals. We provide comprehensive care for all types of arrhythmia, from testing and monitoring to interventional...

  • Atrial flutter

    Need to know

    Atrial flutter is a condition that usually results in a heartbeat that is too fast or irregular. This happens when electrical impulses cause in your heart cause its top chambers to beat faster than the bottom chambers. 

  • Supraventricular tachycardia

    Need to know

    Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia) that causes a sudden, rapid heart beat. SVT happens when there's an electrical abnormality in the middle of the heart or in the upper chambers of the heart (atria). There are several types of SVTs. They can occur at any age from...

  • Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome

    Need to know

    WPW syndrome is a condition which causes an abnormally rapid heart rate. A normal heart rate is usually between 60 and 100 beats per minute. If you have this condition your heartbeat may abruptly increase to abnormally high rates. This is a condition present from birth, affecting 1 in 1,000 live births...

  • Fainting

    Need to know

    Fainting can happen for a number of reasons, but it's usually related to a sudden drop in blood pressure or an abrupt and abnormal increase or slowing of your heart rate. These lead to a reduction in oxygen-rich blood flowing to your brain. This can be caused by an underlying heart problem.

  • Bradycardia

    Need to know

    Healthy adults usually have a heart rate between 60 and 100 beats per minute (BPM) during normal activities. Less than 60 BPM may be considered abnormally slow. You may have a slow heart rate if you're very fit or relaxed, on certain medications or have an underactive thyroid. It can also signify a problem...

Heart rhythm clinic

Leading cardiovascular research

Our consultant specialists have devoted their careers to cardiac health and are at the forefront of several areas of clinical research. While many heart rhythm disorders can be treated effectively or even cured, they are always seeking the right treatment for the right patient at the right time.

All consultants at The Heart Rhythm Clinic are research active, holding either honorary Senior Lecturer or Professor posts at major London Teaching Hospitals, and with responsibility for research supervision of MD, PhD and post-doctoral trainees in cardiology and electrophysiology. We have published over 300 peer-reviewed papers, reviews, editorials and book chapters in the field of arrhythmia medicine. We regularly contribute as faculty members to national and international conferences and are recognised opinion leaders in the field of intervention for atrial arrhythmia management.

Investing in you

Advanced cardiac imaging
We are pioneers in the use of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) to assess cardiac muscle shape, size, thickness and burden of scar tissue. This helps us understand and plan the safe treatment of rhythm disturbances affecting the atria and ventricles.


Cardiac electrical mapping

Together with our atrial afibrilation patients, we perform and study detailed electrical maps of the inner surface of the heart to help decide on the ablation strategy. This helps us give the best possible treatment to our patients, while minimising risk.  


Computer Modelling of Cardiac Arrhythmia

Together with our collaborators in bioengineering, we have developed patient specific tools to model atrial and ventricular arrhythmias. This means we could perform a “virtual” treatment on a patient before ever subjecting them to an invasive procedure with risk.


Our specialist treatments

At HCA UK we have a comprehensive heart rhythm service, offering the latest and most innovative treatments

Chain of Hope logo

Ablation

Ablation therapy can correct a range of abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia), including atrial fibrillation

Chain of Hope logo

Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT)

CRT is a pacemaker or defibrillator with three leads. It improves the pumping efficiency of your heart. 

Chain of Hope logo

Defibrilator

A defibrillator gives a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest

Chain of Hope logo

Pacemakers

A pacemaker or defibrillator can regulate your heartbeat if you have a condition that makes your heart beat too slow or too fast.
