About me

Dr Elliot Smith has been a Consultant Cardiologist at the London Chest Hospital (Barts Health NHS Trust) at Barnet and Chase Farm Hospitals since 2008. He qualified as a doctor in 1994 from Guys and St Thomas’s, and trained in Cardiology at the Manchester Heart Centre and the London Chest Hospital. He manages patients with all aspects of heart disease including blood pressure, heart rhythm disturbance, heart failure and chest pains.

His main specialist expertise is in the investigation and the management of coronary artery disease. He is an interventional cardiologist with expertise in minimally invasive procedures including coronary angioplasty and stenting. He has a particular interest in complex techniques including rotational atherectomy and treating challenging longstanding artery blockages (chronic total occlusions – ‘CTOs’). He leads the CTO programme at the London Chest Hospital (LCH).

Dr Elliot Smith is actively involved in research into new minimally invasive technologies, CTO treatment, and advancing the management of heart attacks. He is also committed to teaching and training. He is a Director of the Cardiovascular Training Institute (CVTI) at Barts Health NHS Trust, a dedicated facility delivering practical skills training in invasive and interventional cardiology. He has developed simulator training programmes and courses for future specialists, and regularly participates in live case demonstrations to colleagues nationally and internationally.
