About me

Consultant Cardiologist Dr McIntosh completed his medical degree in Scotland in 2003 and undertook the majority of his cardiology sub-specialty training in London. During this period he trained in internationally recognised centres of excellence, including Imperial College and The Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Trust. Prior to being appointed as a consultant in the UK he spent two years completing international fellowships in Wellington, NZ (Cardiac Electrophysiology and Complex Cardiac Device Implantation) and in Waikato, NZ (Coronary Artery Intervention and Structural Heart Disease).

Dr McIntosh specialises in all aspects of general cardiology. He holds special interest 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 further expertise 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. Until recently he held an Honorary Consultant role at Nottingham City Hospital.

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.
