I am a General Cardiologist with over 20 years of experience as a busy NHS consultant.I have a particular interest in dizzy spells, blackouts and palpitations. My aim is to provide a one stop shop so that all essential tests are done at the same time as the initial clinical assessment. My patients get my contact details to allow me to respond promptly to queries and concerns. I am happy to see children from the age of 14 upwards when accompanied by a parent or carer, and also patients who refer themselves without a GP letter.
