About me

Dr McIntosh completed his medical degree in Scotland before undertaking specialist training in London, working at cardiac centres of excellence including Imperial College and The Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Trust. Prior to his appointment as a UK consultant he completed two years of international fellowship training based in New Zealand.

Dr McIntosh specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease by angioplasty (stenting) and in the implantation of cardiac rhythm management devices such as pacemakers and defibrillators. He holds a special interest in the management of heart failure and in the implantation of cardiac resynchronisation therapy to optimise cardiac contraction. He has pursued a number of research interests in these fields and was previously recognised as national ‘Scientific investigator of the Year,’ by the British Society of Echocardiography.

In his NHS practice Dr McIntosh is based at The Royal Derby Hospital where he leads the Cardiac Devices and Heart Failure Service. He also acts for the Heart Attack and Interventional Cardiology Service in Derbyshire, treating both emergencies and stable patients who have coronary artery disease.

Dr McIntosh is happy to see patients with all routine cardiac problems including those with chest pain, rhythm disorders, heart failure, heart valve disorders, faints, breathlessness or any other symptoms potentially relating to a cardiac complaint.

Personal Profile -

I moved to the East Midlands in 2015 and live in a village in the Peak District with my wife and three children. I have a son and non-identical twin girls.

In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors and walking in particular. I have previously spent time exploring the mountains of Scotland, Wales, the Alps and the Himalayas. I recently learnt to sail and am very keen to do more of this in future.
