6 April 2020: service update

The Royal Free London is no longer accepting cardiology referrals for urgent clinics, rapid-access chest pain or direct-access diagnostics, in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.

If a patient needs an urgent review, please raise this as a clinical query through Advice and Guidance.

  • Please leave a direct telephone number, which is not one that patients use, within the request and a consultant will contact you to discuss the issue.
  • The service will aim to respond to all advice requests within two working days, sooner if possible.

For routine referrals, refer as usual through e-RS

  • Please note: new appointments are not being booked, patients will be added to a waiting list. 


Cardiology Clinical Advice and Guidance is available and encouraged
