Hammersmith Hospital in the UK will open a new specialist centre to treat people with suspected heart attacks.

The acute chest pain unit will offer diagnostic tests round the clock to those arriving with complaints of cardiac pain, and treat conditions such as unstable angina and heart attacks, hospital authorities said.

The unit, scheduled to open in April 2010, will treat high-risk patients in need of urgent treatment first, and allow low-risk patients to be quickly investigated and discharged.

The London Ambulance Service (LAS) will work with the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust to make sure people with cardiac pain are brought directly to the unit.

The unit will be equipped with nine new cardiology beds to immediately receive patients brought in by the LAS, hospital authorities said.
