Review 5th June 2018 from the Daily Mail: “Meet the best heart rhythm surgeons in Britain”

‘Heart rhythm surgeons and their peers rate the best in their field


St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT HIM: ‘He was one of the very first to push atrial fibrillation ablation in the UK and this has had a massive and positive impact on the lives of so many people — he is very skilled at it,’ says one of his peers.

‘He’s a great patient champion and works closely with the Arrhythmia Alliance, a network of specialists, patient groups and charities, trying to raise awareness of these conditions and improve diagnosis and treatment.

‘He’s also made an immense academic contribution to the subject of arrhythmias as a key researcher,’ says another.

‘This matters to patients because it is a sign of someone keen to develop and refine treatments.’

PRIVATE PRACTICE: London Bridge Hospital.’
