The Yiewsley Family Practice now offers ECG tests to patients who are taking medication that may affect the heart rhythm and/or have other heart risk factors (such as Diabetes, Blood Pressure, raised Cholesterol)

What is an ECG?

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a simple test to check your heart’s rhythm and electrical activity. It will be performed by a trained Healthacare assistant at the health centre.

  • ECG usually takes 10 - 15 minutes to complete. You may book your ECG using the booking link in the SMS message that you have been sent. 
  • ECG results are usually available 5 working days after the test. We will contact you if these are abnormal to arrange any necessary follow-up or treatment, if required.
