The benefits of at home heart tests

There are many reasons why you might feel that you need to check your heart health. It could be that you already live with heart disease and want to monitor your health, you could have had a scare or be experiencing pains, you might have a relative who died of a heart attack, and you're reaching a similar age and want to set your mind at ease. No matter the reason for wanting to check how your heart is doing, an ECG and an appointment will give you the answers you need.

Long waiting times for ECG appointments in hospitals

Unfortunately, the long-term result of the Covid 19 pandemic is that some NHS trusts have wait times of up to 15 months for an ECG appointment. That's not good if you're losing sleep worrying about your health. In many cases with heart health, time can be of the essence; the sooner a problem is picked up, the sooner it can be treated.

Choosing to book a home heart test is much simpler. ECG At Home can deliver a test to any home in mainland UK and Northern Ireland within 24 hours of your order.

No need to travel to get your ECG fitted

For people living with mobility issues or without access to their own transport, travelling to the hospital to have an ECG test fitted can be a stressful experience. It can also be extremely time-consuming. Thankfully, an at-home heart test delivered directly to your home comes with easy-to-follow fitting instructions and a team at the end of the phone to assist. This means that you can get an ECG test without leaving your front door.

More accurate than store-bought ECGs

Using an at-home ECG service for your heart testing is far more accurate than any tests bought in the shops. This is because they are professionally fitted (using guidance from a remote team), and NHS-approved cardiologists analyse the results. Additionally, ECG At Home heart tests pick up every single heartbeat, providing more information about any potential problems you may have.
