More services are now available to patients at Harefield Hospital thanks to the private patients manager Gerri Hamer and the dedicated staff and consultants.

Weekday evening and Saturday morning appointments

The first improvement made by Gerri, who joined us in April 2014, was to extend the outpatients clinic opening hours to 5pm to 9pm on weekdays, and to launch a Saturday morning clinic for patients who would rather see a specialist at the weekend.

The extended hours’ clinic was launched in response to a growing demand for more convenient out-of-hours appointments.

New heart screening service

Based on the success of a similar clinic at Royal Brompton Hospital, Harefield Hospital now also offers a heart screening clinic. The screening service is designed to assess the health of your heart and detect the early signs of heart disease.

The screening involves a personalised assessment with a consultant or cardiac specialist and a bespoke package of tests and scans based on your individual needs.

Rapid diagnostics clinic

Furthermore, a new rapid diagnostics service offers same day or short notice appointments for a range of tests for patients with suspected heart or lung conditions. Tests can often all be done in the same visit and include:

  • echocardiogram
  • electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • chest x-ray
  • ECG tape
  • CT scanning
  • cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) tests.

For patients experiencing chest pain, or other cardiac symptoms requiring non-emergency assessment, same-day appointments are available with leading cardiologists and respiratory physicians.

A dedicated booking service for GPs enables quick and seamless referrals for fast and effective diagnosis.
