Our Cardiac Cath Lab provides fluoroscopic and angiographic services for seven Cardiologists, two Radiologists and a Gastroenterologist.
These Consultants utilise session times on a weekly roster system, generally between the hours of 8.30am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday. An on-call service is also provided Monday to Friday until midnight.
Bookings are made through the Wakefield Heart Centre or through the Cardiac Cath Lab Charge Nurse.
Generally patients are admitted on an in-patient basis to the Hospital. However, those procedures not requiring arterial access are often done as outpatients. Patients may be self-paying, insured or contract patients.
The laboratory is staffed by specialist Interventional Nurses, Medical Radiation Technologists and Cardiac Technologists.
