About us

The Pulmonary Hypertension Service provides diagnosis, treatment, long-term support and advice to patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH) or suspected PH.

Patients can be referred into the service from their GP, another specialty or following an emergency admission.

The Oxford Heart Centre and Echocardiography Department offer a weekly outpatient clinic to diagnose and follow up patients with PH. Patients will normally have routine measurements performed which will include height, weight, blood pressure, oxygen saturations and electrocardiogram (ECG).

An echocardiogram (ECHO) and a six minute walk test may also be performed.

Consultant-led Outpatient Clinic

The clinic is supported by the Adult Congenital Heart Disease and Pulmonary Hypertension Nurse Specialists.
