Health Screens - Heart and Alcohol Tests

Book your appointment

Our Healthy Heart Screen is the perfect option for total peace of mind - whether you have a healthy heart or may be at risk of cardiovascular disease or other heart conditions.

Cardiovascular disease, in most cases, refers to conditions that involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead to a heart attack, chest pain (angina) or stroke. Heart disease may present in other conditions that affect your heart's muscle, valves or rhythm too.

The Healthy Heart Screen involves a 30-45 minute appointment with our Private GP at our CQC certified clinics in Liverpool, Manchester and Newton-Le-Willows. Our screening appointments are fully confidential and discreet, an ideal way to highlight areas of particular concern. An additional session is needed if you book a screen including an Echocardiogram, arranged with our Cardiologist Technician, fully overseen by a Consultant Cardiologist.

Following your Healthy Heart Screen, you will receive a detailed report, containing the results and findings, highlighting any areas of concern and with follow-up advice or next-steps in these areas.

Why are these heart tests important?

Resting ECG:

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test which involves placing 12 connections onto the body to measure the electrical activity of your heart rate and rhythm to show whether or not it is working normally. It is an important test if you have risk factors for an enlarged heart such as high blood pressure or symptoms of heart disease, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, an irregular heartbeat or heavy heartbeats. We are unique that your ECG results will be sent for interpretation by a Consultant Cardiologist to provide you with far superior reporting & analysis than ECG’s at other clinics, giving you a greater understanding of your heart’s health.

Ultrasound Scan of Heart (Echocardiogram or “ECHO”):

Ultrasound imaging is a non-invasive technique for understanding the “performance” of your heart and nearby blood vessels in order to look for any concerns or help diagnose any symptoms you have been experiencing. No x-rays or any type of ionising radiation is involved and for this reason, it is considered very safe. ECHOs at Pall Mall Medical are performed by Cardiology Technicians, who have a greater understanding of the heart than typical sonographers. All images and reports are reviewed by an experienced Consultant Cardiologist, who will provide a medical commentary for the GP to include within your report.
