About us

One of the leading heart specialist centres in the UK

Over the course of the year, Barts and The London Heart Centre treats around 9,000 people with heart problems - including some of the most seriously ill patients in London. Part of Barts and The London NHS Trust, we provide cardiac services at St Bartholomew’s Hospital by St Paul’s in the City of London, The London Chest Hospital in Bethnal Green and The Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel.

Warm welcome

We recognise that patients with heart conditions require very special attention before, during and after their treatment. Our team of experts is dedicated to making you feel comfortable throughout your stay with us.

Leading specialists

The high concentration of complex cases we see means that we have some of Britain’s leading specialists on our team. Their expertise benefits all of our patients. Our teaching hospital status means that we have a higher ratio of doctors and nurses to patients than non-teaching hospitals, which also helps to deliver the best care for our patients.

Using research to develop cutting-edge treatments

As a large teaching and specialist hospital we conduct a wide variety of medical research to ensure that we provide the most advanced and successful treatments for our patients. Working closely with Barts and The London Queen Mary’s School of Medicine and Dentistry, our team of clinicians and scientists are at the forefront of research – investigating new therapies and novel approaches for the diagnosis, classification and treatment of heart conditions.

Seamless service

We ensure that patients and their carers are kept fully informed at each stage of their care. We also work closely with our local healthcare partners ensuring that care continues after our patients leave hospital.
