About me

I graduated from the University of Manchester in 1999, and after postgraduate training in Lancashire I became a Member of the Royal College of Physicians of London in 2002, following which I started my specialist training in cardiology on the Yorkshire rotation. This comprehensive five year programme led to training in all aspects of cardiology including: echocardiography, pacemaker implantation, angiography, angioplasty (PCI), management of coronary heart disease, valvular heart disease, arrhythmias, hypertension and hypercholesteraemia.

Between 2008 and 2010 I worked with Prof Patrick Serruys at the Thoraxcentre, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, undertaking research in new coronary stents and in the risk stratification of patients treated by PCI. My PhD thesis entitled, ‘Risk Stratification in Patients Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Revascularisation’ was awarded by the Erasmus University, Rotterdam in 2011 with a cum laude judicium. My research work has resulted in the publication of over 100 papers in peer reviewed journals (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=scot+garg), 9 book chapters, together with numerous presentations at national and international meetings. I remain a peer reviewer for several cardiology journals, and am on the international editorial board for the journal EuroIntervention.

In 2010 I became the Interventional Fellow at the University Hospitals of North Staffordshire, allowing intensive experience in all aspects of percutaneous coronary intervention. I performs virtually all of my diagnostic and interventional cases trans-radially.

I was appointed as a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at East Lancashire NHS Trust in 2010. I perform approximately 600 angiogram/angioplasty procedures per year, and my annual inpatient and outpatient workload is well in excess of a thousand patients covering all aspects of cardiology. I am currently the Greater Manchester NIHR Cardiovascular Speciality Co-Lead.
