Dr Andrew Flapan
I trained in London and have worked all over Britain before coming to Edinburgh where I carried out research into cardiac failure and hypertension. Since becoming a Consultant I have concentrated on research into psychological aspects of cardiac disease, autonomic nervous system function and heart disease, as well as fish oils and diet.
I have played a lead role in the development of Primary angioplasty for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction in Scotland. In 2009 I was appointed Physician to the Queen in Scotland.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Andrew Flapan at Spire include:
British Cardiovascular Society
