Ward 27 Freeman Hospital

Ward 27 is an Adult Cardiology Unit with a seven-bed day unit which specialises in providing care for patients with coronary heart disease, or an abnormal heart rhythm who have had a procedure to help their condition.

These procedures include:

  • Coronary angioplasty (also known as percutaneous coronary intervention or PCI)
  • Coronary angiogram
  • Insertion of pacemakers or implantable cardioverter defibrillators

Many patients are able to go home the same day as their procedure although some do stay overnight.
