ECG testing and GP interpretation
It is not appropriate for you to do a private ECG as an emergency with us. If you have chest pain and think it may be cardiac related – you need to go to A&E immediately!
Our aim is to provide you with one of the most affordable private ECG testing services in London. Your ECG will be interpreted by one of our GP’s and if there was anything worrying on it, we may suggest an onward referral to a cardiologist.

An ECG measures the electrical activity of your heart. It assesses for any problems with your heart’s rhythm and the conduction of your heartbeat through the heart which may be affected by an underlying heart disorder.
You may want to assess your heart with an ECG if you are having longstanding breathing difficulties or chest pain, especially on exertion, or if you are having palpitations or feel that your own heart beat is abnormal. It may also be done if you are having unexplained episodes of syncope or collapse. An ECG may be used to check for evidence of a heart attack or damage to the heart caused by long-standing high blood pressure. However, performing an Exercise ECG would be best to assess for ischaemic (coronary) heart disease.
The test is completely painless and safe.
