What Will Happen At Your Heart Health Check Appointment?

At EchoMed, we provide state-of-the-art cardiac diagnostics from our Farnham and Emsworth clinics, combining the best equipment and technology with a sensitive and understanding approach. 

If you are concerned about possible cardiac symptoms or want reassurance about the structure and function of your heart, we are easily accessible and here to help. A common question we hear from some of our patients is, what will happen at one of our heart health check appointments?

We have put this article together to outline what you can expect during a heart scan with EchoMed and how we have worked hard to ensure our appointments are as relaxing, comfortable, and stress-free as possible.

Who will Perform Your Heart Health Check Scan? 

Our scans are performed by a Heart Specialist Doctor with training in cardiac ultrasound. All of our team members are accredited by the British Society of Echocardiography, meaning you can have confidence that you are in the best hands possible.

Which Procedures/Tests Are Available?

At EchoMed, we have multiple heart health check scans available, all completed by the Doctors themselves. The procedures we have available include:

  • Echocardiograms (TTE)
  • Electrocardiograms (ECG)
  • 7 Day Holter Monitor
  • Exercise (Stress) ECG

We have worked tirelessly to ensure that all our heart health check procedures are as comfortable and hassle-free as possible, removing the stress from your EchoMed experience and making you feel as comfortable, assured, and relaxed as possible. 

If you have any questions about our procedures or want more information about what you can expect when attending an appointment with EchoMed, please do not hesitate to contact us today.

How are Scans Performed? 

Echocardiogram (or ‘echo’) scans are non-invasive diagnostic scans. Therefore, no equipment is inserted into the body, and no treatment is delivered, with your scan performed using a hand-held ultrasound probe coated with gel and passed across the surface of the chest. From this, painless ultrasound waves are used to create moving images of the heart. 

To ensure accurate measurements, we will measure your height and weight, allowing us to index your heart size compared to these measurements. The heart will be scanned from several different angles.

Usually, an echo scan will take around 15-30 minutes to complete. Upon completion, you will get dressed, and there will follow a detailed discussion of your results with the Doctor. After this, you can leave at your leisure; there is no need for an observation or waiting period.

What is Included alongside Your Scan? 

The cost of a heart scan booking with EchoMed includes guaranteed same-day results, with our helpful and friendly Doctors taking the time to show you your scan images, explain your results, and listen to any queries you may have.

Your results are followed by a complete technical study report that will be sent to you and your GP within 24 hours. Images will be stored securely and can be accessed remotely by other physicians, if needed, through an encrypted portal. You are welcome to keep in touch with your Doctor via email to address any follow-up questions.


We hope this article helped to summarise everything you can expect for the price of a heart health check scan with EchoMed. Our quick and painless heart scans can be immensely beneficial in ensuring that you are prepared for whatever the future throws your way. Even if you happen to show no symptoms of poor heart health, our scans can provide you with peace of mind about the structure and performance of your heart.
