The Rapid Access Chest Pain Clinic has been created by Flinders Private Hospital’s Cardiologists to provide a fast cardiological assessment service for patients with new chest pain. The clinic operates Monday to Friday during normal business hours. Patients will undergo basic clinical assessments such as ECG, exercise tests, chest x-ray and bloods. The objective is to reduce waiting times for assessment and reduce the risk of cardiac morbidity and mortality. Patients with acute chest pain or other associated symptoms suggestive of a heart attack or acute coronary syndrome should attend the Chest Pain Centre.

A Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is a great way for patients to learn more about the heart and exercising, in a friendly and supportive environment. The program has been designed by our professional cardiac rehabilitation team for you and your partner or support person, to discuss ways to modify your risk factors for heart disease and participate in a range of carefully considered exercises to help you get on the move and enjoy life again with safety and confidence.

The first hour is an education session on heart related topics, followed by a one- hour exercise session with a physiotherapist and cardiac nurse.

Flinders Private Hospital conducts a six week cardiac rehabilitation program on Wednesdays from 1.00pm to 3.00pm. Sessions are held on Level 2 of the hospital and in the gym at Flinders Medical Centre.
