Inherited cardiovascular conditions service

Refer a patient to the cardiomyopathy or channelopathy services

The Trust runs a comprehensive inherited cardiovascular conditions (ICC) service. These services cover adults, children and even fetal life. 

 

The services include:

 

  • cardiomyopathy

  • channelopathy

  • genetics

  • aortopathy

  • familial hypercholesterolaemia 

  • pulmonary hypertension. 

 


Refer a patient to the cardiomyopathy and channelopathy clinics 


If you would like to refer a patient to the ICC service at the Trust, we accept referrals from GP’s, paediatricians, cardiologists (adult and paediatric) and general physicians for patients with:

 

  • symptoms suggestive of an inherited heart condition

  • a family history of an inherited heart condition
  • a confirmed diagnosis of an inherited heart condition
  • a sudden death in a family suspected to be caused by an inherited heart condition
  • cardiac screening of individuals born with disorders or syndromes associated with cardiomyopathy or arrhythmia.

 

Referrals should be sent direct to the named consultant or using our secure NHS.net email account by emailing rbh-tr.ICC@nhs.net.

 

Referrals will be passed onto one of our consultants from the list below who will make a decision about which hospital (Royal Brompton or Harefield) and clinic the patient will be seen in.

 

If you need to discuss a referral you should call 020 7351 8103.
