Bookings and Appointments

All HeartCare WA practices operate on an appointment system to minimise delays and inconvenience to patients. To make a booking, please refer to the contact numbers below or visit our Contact Us page. To enquire about anything else please visit our Contact Us page.

Appointments:

You will need to bring your referral, health fund information and your Medicare / Veterans Affairs' card (if applicable) to your appointment. Any previous tests you have had within our clinics will be accessible to us to assist your follow up. Please also bring a list of current medications to your visit with the cardiologist.

Under Medicare rules, you need a valid referral from either a GP or specialist in order to be eligible for a Medicare rebate.

Our staff are committed to providing a friendly, personalised service for all patients. As we offer a variety of tests and procedures, it's important you are aware of preparation requirements prior to the appointment; if you are unsure what to do, ask our staff prior to your appointment or visit our Procedures and Testing section. You will be advised of all preparation requirements at the time of booking the appointment.

Your results will be sent to your doctor soon after your examination. Since your doctor is the only person qualified to discuss your results with you, a follow up appointment with them is important.
