Dr Harding qualified from University of Bristol Medical School in 2000 and was appointed as a Consultant in Clinical & Interventional Radiology in 2010 with NHS practice based at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire (UHCW).
His initial post graduate training was in General Medicine and Intensive Care including a period working in New Zealand. He began training in Radiology in 2005 returning to Bristol and achieved Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists in 2008 winning the Finzi prize in the Radiology section of the Royal Society of Medicine. He completed a period of higher specialist training with many of the UK’s luminaries in Interventional Radiology. He is an active member of the British Society of Interventional Radiology (BSIR) and the Congress of Interventional Radiology Societies of Europe (CIRSE) as well as being the Clinical Lead for Interventional Radiology at UHCW and Clinical Supervisor for senior Interventional Radiology trainees.
He undertakes a number of specialist procedures including Uterine Artery Embolisation (UAE) for fibroids, transarterial chemoembolisation (TACE) for liver cancer and has worked actively performing and promoting the new procedure of Prostate Artery Embolisation (PAE) for men with obstructive urinary symptoms; he is heavily involved in research for this technique (the national UKRoPE study), presented several papers at national meetings and published a number of articles in national & international Radiology journals.
Dr Harding performs a full range of diagnostic & interventional imaging services for both NHS and private patients including X-ray, Ultrasound, CT, MRI and fluoroscopy. His daily practice includes a wide range of modern highly technical minimally invasive image guided procedures including: treatment for uterine fibroids & adenomyosis (UAE), Prostate Artery Embolisation (PAE) for symptomatic prostate enlargement, embolisation in men for symptomatic varicocoeles and in women for pelvic congestion syndrome.
