Dr Jarman is a cardiologist specialising in the treatment of atrial fibrillation and other heart rhythm disturbances. Based at the Royal Brompton Hospital, he performs complex ablation and device implantation procedures at the Royal Brompton and other hospitals.
In the outpatients clinic he sees patients suffering from palpitations and dizzy spells, as well as other possible cardiac symptoms such as breathlessness or chest pains.
As well as investigating and treating patients with hypertension and angina, he sees patients with all types of fast and slow heart rhythm disturbances, and those with heart failure requiring implantable device therapy. He has a particular interest in the management of atrial fibrillation (AF), including investigation with injectable loop recorders.
He performs a wide range of interventional procedures, specialising in complex ablation therapy for all cardiac arrhythmias, including AF ablation. He also specialises in the implantation of pacemakers, defibrillators (ICDs) and biventricular pacemakers to provide cardiac resynchronisation therapy for heart failure.
Dr Jarman studied medicine at Cambridge University (MBBS, MA), St Mary’s Hospital at Imperial College London, and Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA. He undertook specialist fellowship training in interventional cardiac electrophysiology and complex pacing at several leading London teaching hospitals. He is a Member of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP) and has certification examinations in both Invasive Cardiac Electrophysiology and Cardiac Pacing & ICDs from the European Heart Rhythm Association.
During his post-graduate doctorate of medicine (MD) at the National Heart & Lung Institute he developed novel techniques for ablation of atrial fibrillation using noncontact mapping.
He is currently Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer in Clinical Cardiology at the National Heart & Lung Institute, Imperial College London, regularly teaching advanced interventional techniques to visiting foreign fellows and consultants.

He has on-going research programmes studying the factors determining the outcome of AF ablation, assessing the latest interventional technologies such as specialised catheters to improve the safety of AF ablation, and totally subcutaneous defibrillators.
Music and mountains
He is a winner or finalist of multiple prizes including the Imperial College Innovator of the Year, British Cardiovascular Society Young Investigator of the Year, and Royal Society of Medicine’s Young Trainee of the Year. He also won the Royal Society of Medicine’s President’s Medal, and European Cardiac Arrhythmia Society’s Lucienne Dreyfus Award.
