Dr Scott is a Consultant Cardiologist at King's College Hospital. He manages all aspects of general cardiology but has particular expertise in diagnosing and treating heart rhythm problems.
He specialises in the interventional treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. This includes treating patients with palpitations, heart failure and atrial fibrillation. Much of his work involves catheter ablation, including atrial fibrillation ablation. In addition he implants pacemakers and cardiac defibrillators, including cardiac resynchronisation therapy for heart failure patients.
Dr Scott graduated in medicine with honours from the University of Birmingham. He subsequently trained in general medicine and general cardiology in Cambridge and Southampton. Finally he spent six years specialist training in the management of cardiac rhythm disorders. This included research for his DM degree at Southampton on implantable defibrillators. Dr Scott spent one year on Vancouver Island, Western Canada, undertaking advanced training in complex ablation. He completed his specialist training at the Hammersmith and St Mary’s Hospitals in London.
