About me

Dr Sarah Clarke MA MD FRCP FESC FACC, is a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist and Clinical Director for Strategic Development at Papworth Hospital, Cambridge. She is the current President of the British Cardiovascular Society (BCS).

Dr Clarke trained in Cambridge, UK and at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, USA. She was appointed Consultant Cardiologist at Papworth Hospital, Cambridge in 2002. She was Clinical Director for Cardiac Services (2006-2012) and was awarded the Chairmans’ Award for Outstanding Achievement in 2012 for leading the introduction of the Heart Attack Service across the East of England. She was appointed Clinical Director for Strategic Development from 2012. She was the cardiology lead for the design of New Papworth Hospital (opening 2018) on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and is involved in the delivery of the transition programme. She has recently been appointed Clinical Lead for the Elective Care Working Group for the Cambridge and Peterborough CCG System Transformation Programme (covering cardiology, ophthalmology, orthopaedics and ENT) which is looking at reconfiguring the current healthcare pathways into a more sustainable system by removing institutional boundaries and putting the patient first. Dr Clarke is the Clinical Lead for the Cardiovascular Clinical Study Group at the Eastern Academic Health Science Network.

Formerly Vice President of Education and Research at the BCS (2011-2014), Dr Clarke was elected the first female President in the Society’s 90 year history, in 2014. She took up her 3 year post in June 2015. The Society membership of over 13,000 includes cardiologists (both trainees and consultants), scientists and allied professionals. The Society advices on policy, clinical standards, guidelines and research and provides education, training and the trainee exam.

She works closely with the British Heart Foundation, the Royal College of Physicians where she is a member of Council, the Department of Health and NHS England. She also works closely with the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and European Society of Cardiology (ESC) where she is a Board member.

For Dr Clarke, no working week is the same - she maintains her clinical practice and cardiology oncall at Papworth alongside her other national and international commitments!
