Coronavirus: cardiac surgery update

In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, please read our advice and information before attending the service.


Referrals for surgery can be made by cardiologists at St Thomas’ Hospital or other hospitals, including those in Kent, Surrey and Essex, for routine/urgent outpatient and in-patient transfers.

We also accept referrals from other areas as part of the Cardiac Patient Choice Initiative.

Referrals for mitral repair surgery should be sent to our dedicated mitral team.

Referrals from other hospitals must include a completed Inter-Provider Minimum Data Set or ensure that one is sent within 48 hours of referring a patient.

Our outpatient services are based across the Trust.  All admissions are at St Thomas’ Hospital.
