Bupa Cromwell Hospital: Heart surgery and cardiac treatment in London

Bupa Cromwell Hospital private GP service

The internationally renowned Bupa Cromwell Hospital, based in the heart of Kensington in London, opened in 1981 as a state-of-the-art private facility for complex care. Since then it has established a reputation for innovation and is continually investing in the world’s most advanced diagnostic and treatment technologies.


Bupa Cromwell Hospital provides cardiac services for adults and children supported by world class cardiovascular specialists including cardiac surgeons, specialist cardiac nurses, and technicians.


Specialist equipment

Continuing investment in the latest equipment means patients benefit from the best diagnostic tools available:

Discovery CT7500HD computerised tomography (CT) scanner
  • The Discovery CT7500HD computerised tomography (CT) scanner gives quicker scan times, with improved image quality for all areas of the body while reducing the radiation dose by 50%. Clinicians can now run full cardiac CT scanning, and analyse fine vessels and structures they could not visualise with previous CT Scanners. A full body scan can be carried out in just 10 seconds.
  • Their newly refurbished angiography suite offers the most up-to-date imaging currently available in London. They are able to carry out the full range of cardiac interventional diagnostics and treatments using stunning quality 3D imaging. Higher quality imaging helps their consultants make a more confident and speedy diagnosis. 

  • Electrophysiology studies and cardiac ablation allow for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias using most advanced 3D mapping possible today.

Diagnostic services

All investigations are performed by trained specialists under the direct supervision of a consultant:


    • Electrocardiograms (ECGs) (resting and conventional treadmill); ambulatory ECGs/Holter with 1-7 day long-term reveal device

    • Stress echo imaging

    • Bubble studies

    • Echocardiograms with Doppler, 24hour blood pressure monitoring

    • Myoview exercise tests, giving greater sensitivity  to detect  minor cardiac defects

    • Angiography

You will be catered for in single en-suite bedrooms

Cardiac surgery

The hospital offers a wide range of procedures including:


  • Coronary artery bypass grafts and cardio pulmonary bypasses and valve replacement procedures are performed by internationally renowned cardiac surgeons. Surgeons are supported by specialist cardiac theatre practitioners and nurses

  • Off-pump ’beating heart’ coronary artery bypass graft – means shorter time in theatre and less patient stress

  • Minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass

  • Coronary valve repair and replacement


Following surgery, patients are expertly cared for - firstly in the intensive care unit and then in the high dependency unit - before completing their recovery in the cardiac ward.  Here their continuing care is supervised by qualified doctors providing medical cover 24 hours a day.


Patient monitoring

Patients are monitored by a highly-trained nursing staff who specialise in cardiac care. The hospital is equipped with the most modern cardiac monitoring services including:


  • MP30 Phillips monitors

  • Pocket-sized telemetry monitoring units which allow patients the freedom to move around.



Cardiac surgery can be physically and emotionally traumatic. Bupa Cromwell Hospital provides a comprehensive range of preparation and rehabilitation to help patients recover and reach their potential for good ongoing health including:


  • Weight loss and activity advice before cardiac surgery

  • Improving lung capacity and performance after surgery

  • Mobility and exercise programmes – increasing ability to exercise - after heart attacks or diagnosed heart conditions
