Hundreds die each year from an undiagnosed heart condition – that’s hundreds too many. A simple ECG (electrocardiogram) will identify most cardiac abnormalities so that conditions can be managed.
Welsh Hearts are pleased to be PART FUNDING such a vital and life saving initiative for only £65 per person (individual private heart screenings can cost around £300- £450). It is our mission to help protect and promote the heart health of young people here in Wales. Many people still associate heart disease and heart attacks with older people, however this is sadly not the case. But with screening we can make a massive difference and we will save lives.
Let’s get every young heart screened (Aged 8-45)
We work in parntership with two Screening companies Cardiac Health Daignostics (CHD) and the Independent general practice (iGP) with services provided by a team of cardiology consultants and heart specialists.
Our heart screening sessions involve a quick and painless resting ECG (electrocardiogram), a 10-15 minute test to detect any heart abnormalities. Adult sessions in our mobile clinic can also provide, if abnormalities are identified, an ECHO (Echocardiogram). Following your results you will be offered guidance and referral if required.
Our heart screening sessions are suitable for Ages 8-17 years, these are currently only offererd in Cardiff. Our 18-45 years sessions are delivered throughout Wales via our mobile clinic.

With the current situation and uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus it has been decided to postpone our Heart Screening sessions until further notice. We have not taken this decision lightly but due to these worrying times we have a responsibility to protect both the public and the staff. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this difficult time.
