To assist with triaging and prioritisation of your patients, BHRUT Cardiology have requested that we make a change to the current pathway, asking GPs to arrange a 12 lead ECG prior to referring their patients to any cardiac clinic.
Broomwell ECG Interpretation Service, offer a service to clinically interpret 12 lead ECG tests. The GP practice carries out the ECG and Broomwell interpret the reading and sends the report to your practice. This is a fast and easy way to assess and aid diagnosis for the patients in your practice with a suspected cardiac problem. Once you have received your report from Broomwell you will need to upload/append the Broomwell report to your e-RS referral for your chosen service.
Most practices in BHR have access to the Broomwell ECG Interpretation Service, however, if you do not have access to this service or would like further information about the Broomwell 12 Lead ECG Interpretation service please contact the Planned Care team by email at: email@example.com
In addition, if you intend to refer your patient to the Rapid Access Heart Failure Diagnostic clinic (following raised serum NT-ProBNP test result), GPs will need to arrange an Echo through your community providers (details below). This should be arranged in the normal way through e-RS. These results will also need to be attached to your BNP e-RS referral.
