Cardiology

We deal with all conditions affecting the heart, including coronary artery disease (the cause of angina and heart attacks), heart valve disease, heart rhythm disturbances (arrhythmias), heart muscle problems (e.g. heart failure) and high blood pressure (hypertension). The department is led by a team of nine consultants, supported by a team of junior doctors and cardiac specialist nurses.

The Hertfordshire Cardiac Centre at the Lister houses two cardiac catheter labs (for angiography, angioplasty or pacemakers), a full range of non-invasive investigations and some specialist clinics.  Cardiology outpatients are seen at the Lister, New QEII and Hertford County hospitals. Inpatient services are based in the acute cardiac unit on the first floor of the Lister’s new ward block at the front of the hospital (next to the emergency department).  The centre also provides a 24/7 primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) service for patients suffering heart attacks.

We provide a full range of investigations and treatment for outpatients and inpatients, including:

  • ECG

  • 24hr ECG
  • 24hr blood pressure monitoring
  • Echocardiography
  • Transoesophogeal echocardiography
