St George’s Children’s Department works closely with the Children’s Cardiology Department at Evelina Children’s Hospital to provide close to home consultations and clinics for children with possible or known heart problems.
We take referrals from GPs, other hospitals and from within St George’s.
We run screening clinics for those with symptoms suggestive of a heart disorder and joint clinics with a specialist from Evelina for those with a known disorder.
Typical referrals include children with a murmur picked up incidentally, palpitations, sudden loss of consciousness, and those with a documented defect on echocardiography or ECG.
- 24 hour ECG
- More specialised tests such as MRI and tilt testing are arranged.
GP’s and other referring healthcare professionals can refer directly by letter
