About me

Professor Prendergast joined Guys and St Thomas’ Trust in March 2015 as Director of the Cardiac Structural Intervention Programme. Before recruitment to London, he trained in Cardiology in Cardiff, Paris and Edinburgh and undertook Consultant posts at Wythenshawe Hospital, Manchester (2001-2007) and the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford (2007-2015).

He has extensive experience in all aspects of Cardiology, is a clear communicator and strongly advocates the involvement of patients and families in their care and treatment decisions.

Professor Prendergast is a national and international key opinion leader and in frequent demand as a lecturer and speaker. He has been Honorary Secretary of the British Cardiovascular and Cardiovascular Intervention Societies, and Chairman of the European Society of Cardiology Working Group on Valvular Heart Disease. Research interests, which are delivered via collaborative links between London and Oxford, focus on the epidemiology and treatment of valvular heart disease and he is Course Director of EuroPCR London Valves, the world’s largest specialist meeting in valve intervention.
