Referral to our hospitals

Your GP can refer you to our heart centres and heart specialists if he or she is concerned you may have a problem with you heart.

If you suspect you are experiencing a heart attack, please ACT. Call an ambulance - the quicker you get to hospital, the quicker we can treat you and the more effective your treatment will be.
