About me

Dr Lim is a dynamic innovative cardiologist and electrophysiologist who is currently actively researching the best techniques for treatment of arrhythmias, including mapping and ablation of atrial fibrillation and developing novel therapies for treatment of vasovagal syncope.

Dr Lim currently leads the Imperial Syncope Diagnostic Unit, which performs over 700 tilts per year, and treats patients with syncope and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. He is also a clinical electrophysiologist based at Harley Street in central London and at the Cromwell Hospital and performs procedures including pacemaker and defibrillator implantations, and ablation for arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation and supraventricular tachycardias (SVT).

Dr Lim graduated from Cambridge University with a Double First Class Degree in 2000, and was awarded MRCP in 2003. He undertook junior medical training at top Central London Hospitals including Kings College London and the Royal Brompton Hospital, before commencing Cardiology training at Oxford and Northwest London at St Mary’s and Hammersmith Hospitals.

In 2007, he was awarded a Clinical Research Training Fellowship by the British Heart Foundation to complete a PhD at Imperial College London looking into the autonomic mechanisms of atrial fibrillation. Dr Lim then pursued a clinical fellowship at the Heart Hospital, University College London for a year, before being appointed as a consultant cardiologist at Hammersmith Hospital within the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.
