The Cath Lab and Non-Invasive (NICE) departments are open Monday to Friday.
An on-call service is available for Cath Lab weekends and bank holidays 10:00-19:00hrs.
The cardiology department consists of the following areas:
Non-Invasive Department (NICE)
This is where you will have your Exercise Stress tests, ECHO, Cardiac and Blood pressure monitoring exams performed. It is also where pacemaker and implant checks are completed.
Angio Day unit (ADU)
This is where you will be admitted to and recovered after an angiogram, cardioversion or Trans-oesophageal Echocardiogram (TOE). Individuals who are undergoing an Angioplasty/Stenting, Electrophysiology, and device implants are admitted pre-procedure to the ADU and post procedure, admitted to a ward for an overnight stay.

The heart of the operation! In this room, all invasive cardiac procedures are performed. Procedures are carried out by 10 Cardiologists; 3 resident to the Galway Clinic and 7 visiting, who perform procedures at various times between Monday and Friday each week.
