About me

Dr Dormand is a cardiologist with a specialist interest in cardiac imaging. Having qualified from the University of Cambridge she has undertaken training in cardiology in Edinburgh, Trent and the Northwest of England with additional specialist imaging training in cardiovascular MRI at the Royal Brompton Hospital.

She has returned to Scotland, having previously been based at Manchester Royal Infirmary, a large tertiary centre for emergency and routine cardiology care including for those with congenital heart disease or genetic conditions. She is a trainer in advanced cardiac imaging and a speaker at multiple regional and national conferences. Since returning she has also pursued an interest in clinical governance.

Her expertise encompasses all aspects of cardiology, but particularly the assessment and management of those with chest pain and ischaemic heart disease, heart muscle disorders (cardiomyopathies) and valve disease. This extends to pre-operative assessment of cardiac health before surgery, screening for cardiac conditions using imaging technology, caring for those with heart complications from blood disorders and imaging for congenital heart disease.

Having undertaken specialist training in cardiovascular imaging she uses transthoracic echo, including stress echo, along with CT and MRI to investigate and monitor her patients’ health, when this is needed, and can also perform imaging investigations on behalf of her colleagues.
