Other referral pathways
Some of our services and clinics accept referrals from non-GP referrers, teaching professionals, or parents or guardians. Some services accept paper referrals for clinically urgent cases only.
You will need a referral from your GP for most cardiology services, including outpatient clinic appointments, tests and rapid access chest pain clinic.
In an emergency, or if you suspect you might be having a heart attack, dial 999 for an ambulance or go to the Accident and Emergency Department (A&E) in the usual way. You will be referred to the cardiology department if you have cardiac problems.
