Our approach to heart health

We believe that cutting-edge cardiology care means working hand-in-hand with other related specialties to prevent, treat and manage heart disease. Your risk for heart failure can often be reduced by diagnosing and treating underlying and related conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity and diabetes. At London Medical, we have the top experts working together for your care – all under one roof. 

The main symptoms of heart failure include:

  • Breathlessness 
  • Reduced exercise tolerance (an inability to do what you were once able to do)
  • Fatigue
  • Swollen legs (oedema)
  • Having trouble breathing when lying flat

Simon’s story


My advice to anybody who has had a heart attack is not to simply think that that’s the end. Life can continue on normally afterwards

Simon B - 71, is a dedicated football player. When he had a heart attack, he feared he’d have to quit his favourite game.
