COVID 19 - Medication Information 

As a practice, we recognise that supply of medication is crucial at this difficult time and that it is natural to feel anxious about any disruption. We are assured that no significant shortages are expected, and there are plans in place to maintain supplies. It's important that patients only order what they need at the usual time. There is no need to stockpile or order earlier than usual. This will help limit the pressure on our reception staff, dispensary and community pharmacies. If you are self-isolating, another adult can collect medication on your behalf - it doesn't need to be a relative. We will update patients as soon as possible if there any changes to prescription systems. Thank you for your co-operation

Cardiology Services

The Cardiology Service is responsible for the assessment and treatment of a range of Cardiac conditions by a cardiologist specialist doctor and a consultant cardiologist. They will, of course, work closely with your usual GP and be able to organise further opinions, if needed.

Many patients with cardiac conditions do not need to be seen in secondary care by a cardiology outpatient clinic. The cardiology service was therefore set up to provide care within local communities and to ensure patients are seen by the right person, at the right time, closer to home.

It is our opinion that this is a major step forward in improving the care of patients with certain heart conditions.

EchocardiogramsEcho

An echocardiogram is an ultrasound examination of your heart and uses the same ultrasound technology as when an unborn baby is scanned during pregnancy. It can help your doctor see how well your heart muscle and valves are working. It also shows the size of your heart and many other potentially important abnormalities.

The test is relatively pain free, although may be a little uncomfortable, due to the position in which you need to lie (on your left hand side) and the gentle press of the ultrasound probe. It is advisable to wear a comfortable two piece outfit on the day of your examination and not to smoke for at least two hours before the test.

Private Patients

Dr Intisar Mirza is a Consultant Cardiologist at East Kent Hospitals. He has a private clinic at Bridge Health Centre which includes diagnostic testing and consultation. For more information please contact Bridge Health Centre on 01227 831900
