Cardiology is the branch of medicine that studies and deals with heart problems.
You might visit the cardiology department at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust to receive investigation and treatment for heart conditions, such as:
- cardiovascular disease, for example, coronary heart disease that affects the blood vessels to the heart
- heart disease, for example, arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) or heart failure
You would also see a cardiologist during treatment for a heart attack, or if you have a heart murmur.
