our SERVICES

committed to excellence

Peninsula Heart Centre proudly offer our doctors and patients access to a comprehensive range of investigations and treatment options. 

Our highly trained and experienced cardiologists have a range of sub-specialties that allow them to offer total cardiovascular care.  

We believe our team have all your needs covered; interventional cardiology, complex interventional heart failure and rhythm management, to specialist lipid clinics (unique to our practice). We have expertise in structural heart treatments, an area that has, until recent years, been unavailable locally and is one that we are excited to have developed and progress.

Outpatient Cardiac tests

Doctors can refer directly for the following tests which are conducted daily at our various practice sites. If requested, these tests are performed in conjunction with a clinical assessment, or if indicated, as a result of the test.

Exercise Stress Test 

Stress Echocardiogram 

Echocardiogram 

Holter Monitor 

Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring 

12 Lead ECG 

Changes to Medicare on 1st August 2020 have placed limitations on rebates to enable bulk billing for some tests. It is preferable that you use Peninsula Heart Centre for all your out-patient tests so we can monitor the bulk billing status as well as individual progress and ensure continuity of care.
