Dr Banerjee trained in cardiology in the Yorkshire (Leeds) Deanery and obtained his accreditation in Cardiology and General Internal Medicine in 2004. He was appointed as consultant cardiologist at the University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire in November 2004 to establish and lead the heart failure service in this hospital. He also became the network lead for heart failure for 8 years in the Coventry & Warwickshire Cardiovascular Network before it was dissolved in 2013. In 2007 he became an Honorary Associate Professor at the University of Warwick, Research Lead in cardiology in his hospital in 2011, Cardiovascular Lead for the West Midlands within the Clinical Research Network (CRN) in 2012, Chair for the Midlands Heart Failure Group and continues to hold all these positions. Since his arrival he has transformed the heart failure service in his area to an excellent one with pioneering services such as heart failure intravenous diuretic and IV iron day care service in the hospital, ultrafiltration for refractory fluid overload, community (at home) IV diuretic service and an easily accessible community heart failure service including a large clinic and home visits by himself if needed. He performs cardiac catheterisations, right and left heart catheters and cardiac biopsies. Although his main interest is in heart failure he is keen on cardiac imaging with a particular expertise in transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography, in which he has enormous experience. More recently he has taken up Pulmonary Hypertension as a special interest is planning to start a pulmonary hypertension clinic in Coventry jointly with doctors from Papworth Hospital, Cambridge. His other interests include cardiology research and cardiac rehabilitation, services that he also heads in his hospital. His undertook original research on ‘electrical muscle stimulation as a novel method for cardiovascular exercise in normal subjects and heart failure patients’ during his training years; he is currently supervising further NIHR funded research on this. He has also continued with his research interests by being involved in various multicentre studies on heart failure and several in-house trials.
