Background Information 
Professional profile:

Dr Siva studied medicine at Robinson College Cambridge, graduating with a First Class degree in medical sciences, then completing her clinical training at Addenbrookes Hospital Cambridge, graduating in 1991 with Honours in Medicine. Her junior doctor years were spent in London Teaching Hospitals, most notably The Guys Hospital Intensive Care Unit and The Hammersmith Hospital Cardiology department upon which she based her decision to follow a career in cardiology.

Cardiology Training in the South East was followed with a break for PhD research back in Cambridge. At King's College Hospital Dr Siva spent five years completing her training, where she gained experience in complex echocardiography under Dr Mark Monaghan, a leading expert in the field.

Dr Siva was appointed Consultant Cardiologist in May 2007 and enjoys an extremely busy NHS practice in general cardiology. She is now head of the large Queen Alexandra Hospital echo department  and has lead educational roles for medical students, junior doctors and cardiac physiologists.

Dr Siva is specialised in the diagnosis of valve disease, ischaemic heart disease (angina and heart attacks) and heart failure.

Dr Siva's philosophy is that good communication is key to good medical care.

Personal profile:

At home Dr Siva enjoys her four children, two border collies and long suffering husband. She gardens enthusiastically, if not always successfully, and in recent years has taken up running, participating in regular half marathons and, of course, the Great South Run.
