World-class private cardiology services at The Royal Bournemouth Hospital

The Dorset Heart Clinic is a state-of-the-art, private patient cardiology centre located within The Royal Bournemouth Hospital. We are the largest dedicated private cardiology centre on the south coast of England. Your team at Dorset Heart Clinic provides a best-of-both-worlds approach: access to expert care from top UK cardiologists and the highest standards of patient service, combined with the confidence of being in an NHS hospital with the vast array of specialist equipment and resources often lacking in a private hospital – we deliver the highest standards of safety and quality without compromise.

You also visit us with the knowledge that monies are being re-invested back into The Royal Bournemouth Hospital to help front-line NHS care. Whether you are insured or paying for your own treatment, we are happy to welcome you.

Key Benefits of The Dorset Heart Clinic

Dorset Heart Clinic was designed bespoke to provide world-class cardiology services locally

Top Consultants

Trained in some of the leading cardiac hospitals from both across the UK and the world—and with a wealth of experience in private cardiology; our consultants are the best in their field. They provide expertise in every sub-specialty of cardiology with reputations synonymous with excellence both nationally and internationally. They effectively diagnose and treat numerous common and complex heart conditions to give the healthcare each patient needs.

Supporting the NHS

Dorset Heart Clinic income supports the NHS. The business model is based upon keeping private work within The Royal Bournemouth Hospital so that income can be used to benefit frontline NHS clinical services – supporting clinical staff and allowing the NHS to purchase new equipment. We believe this is an important point of differentiation between ourselves and the traditional private hospital model.

Leading Technology

Technology plays a crucial role in healthcare. And the latest technology is required for the best care. For this reason, we use the latest cutting-edge medical equipment and software in the field, from patient examinations to diagnosis to treatments.

Safety of the NHS

We believe high quality and safe healthcare go hand in hand. Our location within the Royal Bournemouth Hospital provides our patients with the knowledge that they have on-site access to the very best staff and clinical resources 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Private hospitals often lack these resources and therefore require an emergency transfer policy with their nearest NHS hospital – this is why we are proud to offer Care without Compromise.
“5-star service all the way so far from referral, first consultation, catheter procedure and follow-up…Nice that I have been copied in on all correspondence back to my GP so that I feel I am in the loop.” — A. Thomson via Google star_rate star_rate star_rate star_rate star_rate

Quick and Easy Access

Any health condition can be stressful, so we strive to offer quick and easy access to all our services. From same-day appointments to speedy results—rapid diagnosis to effective treatment; we aim to bring our patients peace of mind.
“I live in the North and unfortunately this is the second time in my life I have had to travel South to get the service I need….An 8-day wait to see a cardiologist at your Hospital and I have all my questions answered and a plan of action involving stenting is amazing. I am so fortunate to be able to use your facilities and expertise.” — M. Corner via email star_rate star_rate star_rate star_rate star_rate
