Our services are all contained within the purpose-built Chesterman Wing; which provides top quality, modern facilities for the management of heart and lung disease, enabling our multidisciplinary teams to work together to provide holistic, integrated treatment for patients.

We provide a comprehensive range of services for the management of all aspects of Adult Coronary Heart Disease, heart valve disorders, diseases of the heart muscle and heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias, inherited heart disease, as well as the surgical treatment of lung disease including lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and chest wall conditions.
