Expert heart screening & advice
Our heart screening service is delivered by leading sports cardiologist Dr. Antoinette Kenny. The screening includes an electrocardiogram (ECG), an echocardiogram and a personal questionnaire to test for underlying heart conditions or heart abnormalities.
Heart screening can save lives
The most common cause of sudden cardiac death in under 35s is an undiagnosed heart condition. Sport can aggravate an underlying heart abnormality that could lead to a cardiac arrest. Screenings help identify abnormalities and have been shown to save lives.
Is heart screening only for elites?
It is not only elite athletes or footballers who are at risk and need a heart screening. We offer heart screenings to all people who need it, and you receive the same service as the professionals.
How does it work?
The full heart screening process takes less than an hour. Your results will be interpreted by Dr. Antoinette Kenny, one of the UK’s leading cardiologists. You will receive a detailed report in language you can understand.
Your heart screening results
You will normally receive the results in three to five days, we can also send these to your GP. Dr. Kenny will offer support and advice on next steps if any abnormality is found.
