Originally published on our post COVID-19 guidance page

Note: The COVID-19 information on this page was originally produced to aid interpretation of the best available public information regarding the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic within the context of echocardiography. COVID-19 guidance should be read in conjunction with guidance produced by the UK government and other professional bodies; advice that is likely to change as understanding of COVID-19 evolves.

We regularly consider whether our guidance is still appropriate in the context of COVID-19 and as of June 2021 it is fully up to date.
