Dr Wilson will see patients with all manner of cardiac symptoms including patients with problems related to shortness of breath, palpitations, chest pain, dizzy spells and loss of consciousness.
Dr Wilson undertakes the following procedures: permanent pacemaker implantation, implantation of cardiac resynchronisation therapy and implantation of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators.
Dr Wilson is accredited by the British Society of Echocardiography (BSE) in adult trans-thoracic echocardiography and Heart Rhythm UK (HRUK - devices).
He qualified from Manchester Medical School in 2003 where he also studied in Laussane, Switzerland in his final year. He was awarded Membership to the Royal college of Physicians in 2006. He completed an international fellowship in Cardiac Rhythm Management in Wellington, New Zealand in 2011 and was awarded a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Southampton in 2017 for research undertaken in subcutaneous implantable cardioverter. He was appointed a consultant cardiologist in Worcestershire Royal Hospital in 2016.
Dr Wilson has been appointed the Associate Medical Director for Research and Development at Worcester Acute Hospital Trust and has published over 20 articles in peer-reviewed medical journals, presented his research at international medical conferences and authored chapters in medical textbooks.
