For Health Professionals
As the treating healthcare professional of a patient with heart disease, you may be asked to provide additional resources for your patients and their support networks.
The St Vincent’s Hospital Heart Health website includes material to help your patients understand more about their heart health at all stages of their journey - from the point of diagnosis through to treatment and long-term health management.
As leaders in the field, the cardiac teams at St Vincent’s Hospital wish to help you support your patients. We invite you to use our website in your practice and recommend it to others who may find it useful.
Additionally, we value your feedback and would like to hear what you think about our site. Please contact us with any feedback, content suggestions or questions here.
You may also like to take advantage of our referral services.
