About The Wellington Cardiac Unit

The Wellington Hospital cardiac unit is one of the largest specialist private cardiac units in the UK, and an HCA centre of excellence. Some of the nation’s most distinguished cardiologists and cardiac surgeons lead its specialist medical teams, performing ground-breaking procedures every day such as trans-catheter aortic valve implantations (TAVI) and closure of ASD/PFO for patients at risk of stroke.

We’re equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including a new ‘hybrid’ catheter lab and theatre and a dedicated cardiac catheter and electrophysiological lab. We also have a full respiratory function laboratory to assess sleep and breathing studies, and the unit is supported by two adult intensive care units. All of our patients will receive seamless care in a supportive environment.

Meet some of the foremost minds in cardiology

Our cardiologists are available to provide same day access to specialist assessments and all necessary diagnostics for symptoms including:
  • Blackouts
  • Breathlessness
  • Dizzy spells
  • Heart murmurs
  • Palpitations

New state-of-the-art cardiac unit

In March 2019, we opened our newly refurbished cardiac unit with state of the art catheter labs including a ‘hybrid’ catheter lab and theatre that will enable us to perform multiple procedures and also a dedicated catheter and electrophysiological lab.

These developments ensure our patients benefit from the most advanced technology available. Cardiac medicine is always advancing — there are new investigations, techniques and treatments. While traditional open heart surgery is still the right option for many patients, our consultants are pioneering techniques that can achieve the same outcome with less trauma to the body. If your consultant decides that minimal access or minimally invasive procedures are appropriate for you, these latest techniques are available in our unit.

Specialising in every aspect of cardiac care

Our interventional Cardiology techniques use the latest minimally invasive Valvular heart disease treatment procedures, including Trans catheter Aortic Valve Implantations (TAVI) and closure of ASD/PFO for patients at risk of stroke. Our coronary diagnostics include angiography, IVUS, OCT and fractional flow reserve studies. Our coronary intervention procedures include angioplasty, stents, Rotablation and Chronic total Occlusions (CTOs).

Our cardiac expertise

Our cardiologists and cardiac surgeons offer the most advanced cardiac treatments and diagnostic procedures available. Whether your heart problem is complex or routine, we offer the highest levels of expert care.

  • Heart valve surgery

    Need to know

    Heart valves are non-return, one-way valves within the heart designed so that the blood flows one way through the system. They can fail by narrowing (obstructing forward flow) or by tearing (resulting in a leak of blood backwards).

  • Pacemakers and defibrillators

    Need to know

    A pacemaker or defibrillator can regulate your heartbeat if you have a condition that makes your heart beat too slow or too fast. If you have heart failure, it can improve the pumping of your heart. They are small electrical devices implanted just below your collarbone, usually on the left side.

  • Catheter ablation therapy for arrhythmia

    Need to know

    Ablation therapy can correct a range of abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia), including atrial fibrillation. These conditions are caused by abnormal electric signals sent by the heart muscle. Radiofrequency energy or freezing (cryoablation) is used to destroy the heart tissue that's causing the abnormal...

  • Coronary angioplasty

    Need to know

    An Angioplasty helps improve the blood flow in your heart by widening narrowed or blocked arteries using a balloon and stent (a small wire tube). It can help to relieve angina symptoms and can also be used as an emergency treatment if you've had a heart attack. An angioplasty can be performed directly...

  • Septal myectomy

    Need to know

    HCM is an inherited condition where the heart muscle (myocardium) becomes abnormally thick, so it's harder for your heart to pump blood. In some patients, the thickening causes a significant obstruction to the blood leaving the heart. Whilst this can normally be controlled with tablets, surgery...

  • Electrical cardioversion

    Need to know

    A cardioversion is a quick procedure that involves giving your heart a controlled electric shock to restore a normal heartbeat. If you have a heart condition, such as atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter, a cardioversion can correct this.

Cardiac diagnostics

Radiographic diagnostics

Our cutting-edge radiographic diagnostics include two MRI scanners and support for cardiac imaging, high definition CT scans, ultrasound and Digital X-ray.


Echocardiogram examinations with routine spectral and colour Doppler examinations for valve and structural abnormalities, hypertension and congenital heart disease.

Electrophysiology studies (EPS)

In our new, state-of-the-art electrophysiology labs, we offer the latest diagnostic tests for heart rhythm disorders and irregular heart beats.

Non-invasive cardiac diagnostics

We also offer a range of non-invasive cardiac diagnostics including exercise stress echocardiography, ambulatory ECG and blood-pressure monitoring and internal loop monitoring.

Digital cardiac diagnostics

We offer the latest digital diagnostics, including 3D transthoracic and TOE echocardiography for left ventricular function and valvular assessment.

Exercise stress testing echocardiography

We can monitor blood pressure and heart condition through exercise on a treadmill or bicycle. We also conduct ambulatory heart stress testing for complete peace of mind.
