Overview

Services at the Heart Hospital are changing.

From 6 May, cardiac services will be provided by a new service at the Barts Heart Centre.

This is part of our plan to improve our patient care by combining the best of the cardiac services at the Heart Hospital and St Bartholomew’s Hospital into one centre.

The dedicated centre concentrates specialist services in larger numbers which improves outcomes and reduces complications – this can save even more lives a year by providing patients with world-class care at every stage - from prevention and diagnosis, through to treatment and rehabilitation.

The cardiology services provided from the University College Hospital building will continue.

From 6 May -28 June the Heart Hospital is being refurbished. We will update these pages in June to reflect the services that will be delivered from this site. 

While the hospital is being refurbished, thoracic surgery will be provided by UCLH from The London Clinic.
