Coronary Heart Disease is the single leading cause of health loss for the Nelson Marlborough population.
Cardiology is a medical specialty that diagnoses and treats people with heart disease. Cardiology services are delivered by a variety of health professionals, including highly skilled cardiac interventionists or heart specialists, as well as specialist nursing and allied health staff.
A district wide cardiac service is provided by Nelson Marlborough Cardiology Department and carried out by a group of multidisciplinary clinicians.
Cardiology services available include:
- the Coronary Intervention Suite
- Specialist nurse led services
- Physiology services
- Echocardiography services
- 'Healthy Hearts' cardiac rehabilitation.
Most cardiology services are available at Wairau on a sessional basis.
Interventional procedures require a pre-admission clinic, this is carried out at both hospital sites.
There is a locally produced YouTube video, In Good Hands for cardiac angiography. All patients receive a DVD of the video with their appointment letters.
