Welcome!

The Cardiac Centre is a private practice located in the heart of Wollongong, Shellharbour and Bowral. Our practices are easily accessible by public transport and have wheelchair access. We aim to empower our patients by working in partnership with them to achieve the best outcome for their heart health.

We would like to reassure our patients that we remain open for anyone requiring cardiac consultation or treatment. In order to limit the spread of COVID-19 and to minimise the risk to vulnerable patients and our staff, we are practising in line with NSW Health guidelines. In particular, please adhere to the following recommendations where possible:

  1. If you have any symptoms including fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, chills, rash, abdominal cramping with diarrhoea or vomiting, please defer your appointment until 14 days after resolution of symptoms.
  2. If you have been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19 or live with anyone with the above symptoms, please defer your appointment for 14 days.

We have implemented social distancing principals and ask during this time that only scheduled patients attend appointments and that any support persons or family members wait outside the clinic unless required for mobility or interpretation assistance. In the interest of all our patients and staff you are required to wear a mask at time of your consultation and will be asked a few questions when booking your appointment or when you present to one of our clinics relating to this matter. Please ensure you bring a mask to your appointment.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.

How to make an appointment

Our doctors' waiting list can be long. However, we will ensure that sick patients and urgent requests are accommodated and we will endeavour to schedule your appointment within a timely manner, so please contact us.

If you require an interpreter please advise our staff at time of booking.
On the day of your appointment, we would appreciate it if you could bring along:

  • A referral letter

  • Medicare and private health fund cards
  • Pension or Concession card
  • Copies of blood test results, chest x-rays, ECGs, CT scans, MRIs and any other information that may be relevant

Our doctors attempt to run on time. However, medical emergencies may result in delays. Our secretaries should be able to give you an estimate of your waiting time. We apologise if we keep you waiting.

If you are unable to attend your appointment, please telephone us at least 1 day in advance so that we can offer your appointment time to other patients on our waiting list.

You will be advised of the fee at the time of booking. Please note that all services provided must be paid for on the day of the appointment. Most service fees are eligible for a Medicare rebate.
