    Background Information 
    Professional profile:

    Lydia qualified in 1998 from University College London after gaining many undergraduate prizes and a 1st Class Honours BSc degree. She trained in cardiology at Guys and St. Thomas' Hospitals and SE England with valuable experience gained in cardiomyopathy during a period of research at The Heart Hospital, UCL.

    She completed her training in 2010 working as a consultant cardiologist in East Sussex before relocating to Frimley Park Hospital where her husband works as an orthopaedic consultant surgeon. However, she maintains strong links with East Sussex as a member of Eastbourne, Seaford and Hailsham Clinical Commissioning Group.

    Lydia is a well rounded cardiologist who has dual accreditation with General Internal Medicine. She has a genuine focus on providing care which is tailored to each individual patient and recognises that the joy of her job is that no two consultations are ever the same!

    Lydia has specialist interests in echocardiography including the non invasive assessment of chest pain, heart valve disease and heart failure including familial cardiomyopathy and cardiomyopathy associated with systemic disease.

    Personal profile:

    Lydia grew up in Surrey, leaving to go to University in London where she met her husband, Seb Sturridge. Seb and Lydia trained for more than 20 years before returning to Surrey together as consultants in orthopaedics and cardiology respectively. They try and spend any free time not talking about bones and hearts(!) with their boys keeping them active rambling in the Surrey countryside
