Strike action is taking place across our services from Saturday 24 February to Wednesday 28 February. We'll contact your directly if your or your child's care is affected. We're sorry for any distress that delays to your care may cause.

Setting up a heart monitor at home

We may ask you to set up and use a heart monitor at home, so your child's heart activity can be monitored. If we ask you to do this, we'll provide you with everything you need.

We have created the videos and instructional leaflets below to help you correctly set up and use the heart monitor. In the videos and leaflets we also explain what you need to do after the recording period has finished to return the kit to us.

Please make sure you watch the video and read the leaflet relevant to the device you have been given.

If you have any questions, please call the cardiac physiology team on 020 7188 9224.
