Suffolk GP Federation delivers a community cardiology service which provides an alternative to hospital care for patients needing non-invasive cardiological assessment and treatment.

Patients are referred via Ipswich Hospital after visiting their own GP. We are unable to accept walk in appointments as they are all arranged in advance.


Please note: Due to COVID, clinics currently only run from Riverside Clinic in Ipswich but there are also telephone clinics to make sure that everyone is able to get the advice and support they need. Telephone appointments will only be held if a consultant has reviewed the patient’s case and deems it appropriate and clinically safe to do so.


Clinics run on a Thursday afternoon from Framfield House Medical Centre in Woodbridge and on a Friday afternoon at the Riverside Clinic in Ipswich. There is free parking at both locations.

Each clinic has a cardiology consultant from Ipswich Hospital in attendance along with one or two GPs specialising in cardiology.

Typical conditions that are seen include palpitations, angina, heart murmurs, valve disease, breathlessness, heart failure, hypertension, atrial fibrillation, syncope and blackouts.

For more information download our cardiology leaflet, contact or call 0345 241 3313 (option 4).
