About me

Dr Clarke qualified from Oxford Medical School in August 1989 as a batchelor of medicine and surgery ( BM BCh). Entered St Catherine's College Oxford in 1983 and awarded an upper second (II.I) in Physiological Sciences in 1986. Having gained his membership of the royal college of physicians (MRCP) in 1992 he entered higher medical and cardiology training with approximately 50/50 of his experience in district and teaching hospitals. Returned to Oxford in 1995-2001 to train as a cardiologist and was appointed as a consultant cardiologist at Warwick in 2001.

His passion is clinical cardiology which involves the diagnosis, care and management of patients with heart related diseases.

Dr Clarke was accredited in transthoracic echocardiography in 2002 and has been regularly reaccredited.

As his main interest is heart failure, rhythm disturbance and pacing he trained and was accredited in cardiac device implants and management (2009-2012) and subsequently set up the cardiac device service at Warwick in June 2012.

In May 2017 he took up the role of Clinical Director of cardiology at Warwick. Warwick cardiology now Has 6 consultants compared with 2 back in 2001.

Procedures he performs and approximate numbers in brackets: Coronary angiograms (>2000), standard pacemakers (>1000), complex cardiac devices (>300), transthoracic echocardiography (>3000), DC cardioversion (>200), reveal loop recorder implants (>75)

He enjoys friends and family, general fitness and skiing, cultural holidays and city breaks and good wine.

Areas of interest

Heart failure and valve disease;
Cardiomyopathy;
Atrial fibrillation and heart rhythm disturbances;
Syncope/ Blackouts;
Cardiac pacing / standard pacemakers;
Cardiac devices (complex pacemakers) to treat heart failure and reduce risk of sudden death;
Chest pain / angina assessment

Passionate about quality care. This starts with giving patients time to explain their issues and listening. The information directs careful examination and targeted investigations and ultimately a personal treatment plan. As a result Dr Clarke's consultations do not always run to time.
