We care for and treat people with non-coronary blood vessel disease.
What we do
The clinic can see patients with:
- thickening or narrowing of blood vessels
- a history of TIAs or stroke where disease of the carotid arteries (the vessels which supply blood to your brain) is suspected

We can perform ultrasounds of blood vessels at your clinic appointment to help in diagnosis and management.
