Dorset Heart Clinic provides healthy heart screening for all aged 18 and over.
It’s never too early to start
By eating more healthily, becoming more active or stopping smoking, you can reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes. The power to change things is in your hands. Reduce those risks and you can make heart problems much less likely.
Heart Screening is just a call or click away
There may be a reason why you wish to be screened, even though you have not suffered any symptoms related to a heart condition. For example, within your family there may be a history of heart-related illness, or you may be an athlete who is concerned about the way your sport could be affecting your heart.
The session will involve a discussion with the consultant regarding your health history and any heart conditions suffered by closely-related family members, and then you will have an electrocardiogram (ECG) test, which takes around 10 minutes. The consultant may also recommend that you have an echocardiogram, which is an additional 30 minutes.
Please refer to the individual test pages for more information.
