When

Monday to Thursday all day.

How

Referrals are made by letter.
Appointments are made by the Cardiology Appointments Clerk.
Appointments are sent or confirmed by post.

Where

Cardiac Centre, 3rd Floor Central, Royal United Hospital, Bath


Preparation

Patients should wear a loose short sleeved top which can easily be taken on and off over the recorder.
