Cardiac Assessment Centre
Albury Wodonga Private Hospital is pleased to advise that our Cardiac Assessment Centre is now opened at 1156 Padman Drive Albury to cater for all of our patients’ heart care needs. This is a new service which will add value to the existing Cardiac Unit at the hospital.
This new service will provide a referral pathway for GPs to refer patients directly to the centre for attention to their cardiac concerns. They will then be reviewed by one of our Specialist Cardiologists and our highly skilled cardiac team. Patients will have on-site access to a variety of diagnostic services such as ECG, echocardiogram and stress echocardiogram as well as blood tests and x-rays if required. In addition, GPs will have access to an on-call Cardiologist.
Our aim is to provide patients with leading cardiac care that is close to home by ensuring rapid access to the centre for assessment and most importantly, rapid delivery of results and diagnosis back to their GP. This will enable a quick turnaround time should further treatment be required.
To enable easy access to this service all you need to do is fax the completed Referral form, a copy of which is attached to 02 6057 0357 and one of our friendly staff will confirm receipt of the fax, triage the request and call the patient with the appointment details. An electronic referral template is also available to download directly into your practice software. For further information please contact our GP Liaison Officer – Emma Clark on 0428 393 249 or firstname.lastname@example.org who will be happy to guide you through the process.
