As of Monday 25 January until further notice Wessex Cardiology will not be able to offer regular private clinics at the Spire, until further notice.
The COVID situation is absolutely critical in the NHS and all our consultants must devote all their time to helping with this battle. We may possibly be able to offer some urgent telephone consultations, on an ad hoc basis out of hours in our own free time. However, it is unlikely that we will be able to offer any routine daytime clinics until this crisis resolves. If you are offered a telephone consultation it cannot be guaranteed to be at a specific time due to emergency work, we will do our best under the circumstances to call you as near to the allocated time as possible- please bear with us. Our office staff will continue to work normal hours and will be able to advise you as needed. It is likely that you will be able to continue to have tests for your heart such as echos and ECGs at the Spire, as diagnostic testing at the Spire is not directly effected by this wave. However no private procedures will be undertaken for Cardiology, if you need an urgent procedure for your heart this will have to be done in turn on the NHS. This is because the NHS is using Spire operating theatres to try and keep some urgent NHS work running. We suggest you contact our office staff to discuss your needs.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation at this difficult time.
