About me

Prof Rod Stables is a consultant cardiologist at the Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital (LHCH), UK.

He graduated in medical sciences from Churchill College Cambridge and read clinical medicine at St Edmund Hall, Oxford. He trained in cardiology at The John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford and at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London, completing specialist training in 1998.

Prof Stables has an established, leading reputation for practice and research in interventional cardiology. He holds a National Clinical Excellence Award at Gold level.

His clinical interests include coronary intervention including PPCI, TAVI and non-surgical septal reduction in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

His academic interests are focused on the democratisation of clinical research, seeking to simplify the design, conduct and reporting of clinical trials and other forms of outcomes analysis. He founded the Clinical Trials and Evaluation Unit at the Royal Brompton Hospital and led its initial flagship ventures. He developed the risk adjustment algorithm that was used in the initial national reporting of named-operator PCI outcomes. More recently, his research group has been responsible for some successful UK clinical trials including HEAT-PPCI and RIPCORD 2. He is a past chair of the Academic and Research Committee of the British Cardiovascular Society and Clinical Lead of the BHF Clinical Research Collaborative.
