Further Care

If after the non-invasive test it appears that you would need more sophisticated investigations, either invasive or non-invasive, we will provide you with more detailed information. Some of these tests (CT Coronary Angiogram, Myocardial Perfusion Scan or Tilt test) are only available on NHS and are free of charge. Other tests or procedures (Invasive Coronary Angiogram, Implantable Loop Recorder, Pacemaker insertion) can be done on the NHS or privately. Duchy Hospital provides private self-pay packages for these procedures and we will provide you with full details as required.
