  • Academic and clinical leaders: Our cardiologists are at the forefront of heart care. They continually research, publish in prestigious journals and train future doctors at the U.K.’s top teaching hospitals. You’re in the hands of dedicated experts who are always discovering newer, better ways to care for your heart. 
  • Specialised expertise: Each of our cardiologists specialises in key areas of heart care, including complex coronary artery disease, valve disease, heart failure and arrhythmias. This depth and breadth of expertise means we have the resources and specialists available to treat challenging and uncommon conditions. Even if you have been told you are out of options, we can provide hope.  
  • Pioneering the latest innovations: We’re committed to bringing you the latest advances in heart care. Our team is currently developing techniques for robotic percutaneous coronary interventions, laser lead extraction and laser coronary angioplasty. These sophisticated, minimally invasive treatments will help many patients recover faster with less pain. 
  • State-of-the-art equipment: Our state-of-the-art facility includes a cardiac hybrid operating theatre. This unique lab combines the latest advances in imaging, interventional and surgical technology. It allows our team to deliver the most complex treatments, such as combined coronary revascularisation and valve interventions, in a single procedure and with less invasive techniques. 
  • 24/7 care from heart specialists: We are one of the few private cardiac centres in the U.K. to have a consultant cardiologist on call 24/7 to oversee your heart health. Our hospital also has an acute admissions unit (AAU) and a level 3 intensive care unit (ICU), staffed by an on-site consultant intensivist around the clock. These safeguards ensure we’re always available for any critical heart problems.

Heart Diseases We Treat

Our heart specialists care for: 

Heart Disease Diagnosis

We offer a full range of cardiac tests at all our locations, so you receive all the diagnostics you need in one place. Cardiologists, electrophysiologists and heart imaging specialists work together to streamline the process. Whenever possible, we schedule multiple tests in a single visit. Our experts provide results promptly, so we can start discussing treatment options sooner. Learn more about our heart imaging services.

Our Cardiology Services

We offer a broad range of cardiology services for common and complex conditions. Multispecialty teams tailor treatment plans to improve your quality of life.

Coronary, valve and structural interventions

Our cardiologists work together to perform minimally invasive interventional procedures. We use imaging guidance and catheter-based techniques to treat many conditions affecting your coronary arteries and the valves, chambers and muscles of your heart (structural diseases).

Our experts specialise in complex coronary disease, such as chronic total occlusion, and disorders of the aortic, mitral and tricuspid valves. Learn more about our interventional cardiology services.

Heart disease prevention and management

Heart-healthy lifestyle coaching is at the core of our care. We also excel at assessing and treating people at high risk for cardiovascular disease or a heart attack due to inherited diseases and complex lipid disorders. If you need surgery for any health condition, a dedicated team performs pre-operative assessments to reduce the risk of cardiac complications.

Heart failure diagnosis and treatment

Heart failure is a long-term condition where the heart can’t pump blood effectively. It can occur if the heart is weak, damaged or can’t fill up with blood as it should. High blood pressure, coronary artery disease, valve disease and heart rhythm disorders are a few potential causes of heart failure.

Our experts:

  • Evaluate undiagnosed symptoms, including shortness of breath, fatigue, weakness or swelling of the legs and abdomen.
  • Build treatment plans for people with previously diagnosed heart failure.

At Cleveland Clinic London, our comprehensive and multispecialty clinic helps people with all types of heart failure. Through careful testing, personalised treatment and long-term monitoring, we offer the opportunity for prolonged life and improved quality of life for people who have found limited treatment options elsewhere. 

Heart failure diagnosis 

An accurate diagnosis is essential for effective heart failure treatment. Different types of heart failure can overlap, so therapy depends on identifying the underlying cause.

We use a measure called ejection fraction to assess how much blood your heart pumps out with each heartbeat. If you have:

  • Reduced ejection fraction (systolic heart failure), your heart doesn’t send enough blood to your body.
  • Preserved ejection fraction (diastolic heart failure), your heart pumps enough blood, but the bottom chambers of your heart are stiff and don’t fill with blood as they should.

We usually use echocardiography to measure ejection fraction. Other non-invasive tests we use to diagnose heart failure include:

  • Blood tests (including cardiomyopathy screen).
  • Cardiac MRI and CT coronary angiography.
  • ECG and Holter monitor.
  • Six-minute walking test.

We may also use minimally invasive tests, such as cardiac catheterisation or a cardiac biopsy, to gather more information about how well your heart is working. 

Heart failure treatment

Our heart failure treatment options include:

  • Medical therapy: Medications include beta-blockers or ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) inhibitors, while we closely monitor your kidney function, blood pressure and heart rate.  
  • Device therapy: You may be a candidate for an implantable cardiac device, such as a biventricular pacemaker (CRT) or implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD).
  • Surgical or keyhole interventions: Open or minimally invasive procedures can treat coronary artery or valve disease. Learn more about heart surgery and interventional cardiology. 
  • Heart transplant and ventricular assistant device (LVAD and RVAD): We work closely with two leading NHS transplant centres and have in-house access to many forms of circulatory support, including ECMO. 
  • Cardiac rehabilitation: This medically supervised programme supports exercise, healthy lifestyle modifications and education.


We offer cardio-oncology services to assess your heart health before and after cancer treatment. Our experts care for acute and long-term cardiotoxicities related to cancer treatment, including heart failure, high blood pressure and heart muscle disease. 

Lead management and device extraction

If you have a pacemaker, biventricular device or implantable cardioverter defibrillator, our experts provide 24/7 remote monitoring. We make sure your device is working properly and receive immediate notifications if you have any abnormal cardiac events. 

We also perform procedures to upgrade devices, replace batteries and add leads when necessary. Electrophysiologists and cardiac surgeons work together to perform complex lead extraction procedures in our hybrid operating theatre. Learn more about our electrophysiology services.

Sports cardiology

A multispecialty team offers comprehensive cardiac care for athletes of all performance levels. Whether you have a newly diagnosed or congenital heart disorder, we evaluate your risk factors and make a plan for safely continuing the activities you love. We specialise in advanced imaging for heart diseases, including stress echocardiography and cardio-pulmonary exercise testing. Learn more about our sports cardiology services.

Renal Denervation

Medications and lifestyle changes are common treatments for high blood pressure, but they don’t work for everyone. Renal denervation is an innovative procedure that lowers blood pressure and your risk of future cardiovascular complications. Learn more about our Renal Denervation services.

Heart, Vascular and Thoracic Self-Pay Services

Whether you need a cardiac MRI scan, or want to know the cost of interventional cardiology, sports cardiology, surgical procedures or other services, we can help. Cleveland Clinic London has the most innovative tests and treatments available for self-pay, so you’re prepared for whatever turn your health takes. Find out more.
