Following your GP referring you to a private cardiologist, an appointment will be made to see them at their rooms.
Prior to or following this appointment, your cardiologist may run a series of tests to assist in management decisions. Depending on these results you may require treatment or further tests. One option for further diagnosis is coronary angiography.
If requiring coronary angiography (an angiogram), your cardiologist may refer you to the Mercy Heart Centre. The time between this referral and when you have your coronary angiogram is between 2-4 weeks.
On receipt of your Cardiologists referral, an appointment willl be sent to you from the Mercy Heart Centre along with patient information, and contact details.
This appointment is for the angiogram procedure with no separate pre admission required.
