How can I be referred to the Peninsula Heart Clinic?
You can only be referred to the Peninsula Heart Clinic after your referral has been reviewed by the cardiology department at Derriford hospital. This is because we work very closely with University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust and any NHS referrals from your GP or elsewhere must always be first seen (triaged) by our NHS partner. This requirement is based around patient safety to ensure patients with complex needs are separated from those with a simpler medical history.

How much does it cost to be seen privately at Peninsula Heart Clinic?
As keen advocates of patient choice, we offer our services to both NHS and Private patients. If you are referred to us by your GP as an NHS patient, you do not have to pay for any of our services and will received your treatment under the NHS for free as you would at any NHS facility. If you have been referred to us as a private patient because you have insurance or are self-funding, we will charge for treatments. Our up-to-date price list for self-pay patients can be found here.
