How we operate

Echocardiography

  • We cover Monday-Sunday clinics.
  • All of our standard outpatient TTE clinics operate at 40-minute intervals, with scanning and reporting onsite. All reports are finalised and stored the same day.
  • All of our specialist cardiac physiologists within our regional teams are experienced BSE or EACVI accredited, and have over 2 years experience post-accreditation.
  • Clinical quality, we adhere to BSE guidelines on minimum dataset for transthoracic echocardiography. We audit our work monthly, reviewing up to 10% of all work performed, and we report quarterly to our customers on quality, activity, and against all agreed KPIs.
  • We can provide echo machines and a cloud-based reporting system with our services if this is required. If reports are to be completed via our reporting system, PDF reports will be provided post-appointment.

Ambulatory ECG Analysis

  • We can provide reporting capacity for unreported ambulatory ECGs (Holters), or we can provide a fully outsourced service sending monitors to patients at home to self-fit.
  • We use Spacelabs and can securely transfer recordings and completed reports that fully integrate into your system.
  • All of our specialist cardiac physiologists within our analysis team are UK-trained cardiac physiologists and hold appropriate SCST qualifications/certifications.
  • Clinical quality, we audit up to 5% of all of our reported ECGs, and adhere strictly to the latest guidelines.
  • All data is processed or stored in the UK, and all analysis takes place in the UK.
  • We can provide additional monitor capacity if equipment is needed, or staff to fit/remove monitors if workforce is a challenge.
