The Queensland Cardiovascular Group (QCG) continues to provide quality cardiac healthcare after more than 20 years in practice. QCG was established in 1993 with the vision of providing comprehensive investigative cardiac services and state of the art treatment options to patients throughout Queensland.
Since then, QCG has pioneered and set the benchmark for group cardiology services in Queensland, proudly remaining an independent, patient orientated practice focussed on excellence in cardiovascular care.
As leaders in their fields, our 25 cardiologists, consisting of electrophysiologists (heart rhythm specialists), interventionalists (structural heart specialists) and imaging (diagnostic testing) specialists, provide experienced and compassionate clinical assessment with cutting edge technologies to provide patients and referring doctors with a quality integrated service.
At QCG, patient experience is our primary focus. Our patients all receive individualised attention by cardiologists, nurses, scientists, technicians and office staff – it's a team effort.
We ensure best practices and optimal outcomes through timely evaluations and early tailored interventions. We offer easy access to appointments across our practice locations throughout Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and regional Queensland, and provide services to remote Queenslanders on the Heart of Australia truck. We are a culturally diverse practice, with the ability to offer consultations and diagnostic testing in a multitude of languages.
We aim to work with our referring practitioners to meet their individual requirements, and those of their patients, to foster long-term relationships.
We provide accurate and reliable results, available with ease and minimal delay and attempt to accommodate all urgent requests. QCG as a practice is committed to the continuing education of general practitioners through our bi-annual conferences and online education and support. We provide around the clock emergency contact numbers and inpatient care, and with continuous on-call cover, we are here to support referring practitioners 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year.
We are the longest established independent group of cardiologists in Queensland.
We established the first private electrophysiology (heart rhythm) service in Queensland, and one of the first in Australia. We were the first in the private sector to offer diagnostic coronary angiography, pacemaker implants and defibrillator implants. In association with our preferred hospitals, we have equipment that’s not available to any other hospital in the southern hemisphere, assisting us to provide unique services to patients and lead the way in cardiac management.
