Providing the highest quality in cardiac care

John Flynn Cardiology was established by Dr Ian Linton with the opening of the John Flynn Hospital in 1993. Our cardiologists include adult cardiologists, Dr Kevin Franklin and Dr Ahmad Nasir, and a paediatric cardiologist, Associate Professor Cameron Ward. The service is based at the Medical Centre on the John Flynn Hospital Campus. We also conduct a satellite clinic at Murwillumbah. 

In addition to seeing patients for clinical consultation, our cardiologists, supported by a team of cardiac scientists and administrative staff, provide a range of tests to assist in assessing our patients’ cardiac health.

These tests include Echocardiography, Transoesophageal Echocardiography, Exercise Stress Testing, Holter Monitoring, Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring and Coronary Angiography. All of these tests are available at the John Flynn Medical Centre, with Echocardiography and Holter Monitoring also available at Murwillumbah.

If you have been referred for one of our testing services, more information on these may be found in Patient Information.
