Cardiovascular services

Treating problems of the heart or blood vessels

Our cardiovascular centre at Guy's and St Thomas' provides a wide range of services to the local population, and, as a specialist centre, primarily to South East London and Kent. 

The centre is comprised of three departments; cardiology, cardiac surgery and vascular surgery, providing treatment in the outpatient, day-case, inpatient and community setting.

The cardiovascular centre also houses the South East London Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) screening service, specialised vascular ultrasound services and has strong links with the King’s College London cardiac imaging service.

Please see each specialty for specific information and referral details.

Our staff are highly skilled and experienced. We also have strong support teams and researchers working to find new treatments.

Our nurse-led continuing care team provides ongoing support and advice to patients both at home, and when they have returned home. Their aim is to help patients to recover fully and regain as much independence as possible.

The nursing care was outstanding - intelligent and compassionate. This must be the very best the NHS has to offer.
