Cardio Review

As a result of an OML I have been having an annual review with a cardiologist for the past 30 odd years. I am also required to endure the Bruce Protocol treadmill and a 24 hour Holter monitor. These tests were, until recently, done at the CAA medical centre at Gatwick, UK. Now that the CAA have closed that centre down I am left in a orphaned state regarding the required checks. Can anyone offer recommendation regarding an AME and/or cardiologist anywhere along the EGLL/ EGKK corridor? Any advice appreciated.

I can highly recommend Dr Tallent AME at the Brookdale Medical Centre, Horley Aviation Medical Services ?. He has a treadmill there and can do the Bruce protocol test, after which he can send the trace with a referal letter to Dr Banerjee, Consultant Cardiologistic at the private Spire Gatwick Park Hospital which is next door https://www.spirehealthcare.com/spir...park-hospital/. Dr Banerjee is a cardiologist at the East Surrey NHS Hospital https://www.surreyandsussex.nhs.uk/ Redhill also.
