One-stop diagnostics

At RB&HH Specialist Care, our teams work closely with health professionals, general practitioners and international embassies to facilitate rapid referrals and keep them up-to-date on the latest developments in heart and lung care. Our dedicated team of experts ensure patients referred to us receive the very best in care and clinical expertise.

Internationally renowned RB&HH consultants provide expert assessments using state-of-the-art imaging and diagnostics technology, ensuring patients from the UK and overseas are on the very best treatment path as early as possible.

The specialist care team is always looking to improve the services provided to referrers and patients. Based across three convenient locations, each of our centres has access to outpatient and diagnostics capabilities. This enables us to provide access to a variety of tests at each location which can be scheduled on the same day, five days a week. This ‘one-stop’ approach provides patients with rapid access to diagnostic testing and minimises the impact of having to attend multiple appointments and unnecessary travel.

We offer a choice of three convenient London locations with state-of-the-art facilities:

  • Royal Brompton Hospital, Chelsea
  • Harefield Hospital, near Uxbridge
  • Outpatients & Diagnostics, at 77 Wimpole Street

At each of our locations, patients will receive an expert assessment using the latest diagnostics and a full reporting service is also given to health providers. The tests available across our locations include:

  • MRI for both cardiac and general assessment
  • PET-CT including rubidium cardiac imaging, oncological and neurological
  • CT across cardiac, lung and general
  • Echocardiography (transthoracic, stress and contrast-enhanced)

Advanced Imaging is available at our Outpatients & Diagnostics facility at 77 Wimpole Street. Patients can be referred here for PET-CT scanning; this includes rubidium cardiac imaging. Cardiac PET has several dvantages such as improved efficiency, lower radiation exposure, fewer attenuation artefacts and improved resolution.
