Dr David Wilson
MBChB MRCP DM
I am a cardiologist based at the Worcester Royal Hospital. I am fully trained in all aspects of cardiology and have particular interest in heart function and cardiac rhythm management. I see patients with all manner of cardiac symptoms including patients with problems related to shortness of breath, palpitations, chest pain, dizzy spells and loss of consciousness.
I undertake the following procedures: permanent pacemaker implantation, implantation of cardiac resynchronisation therapy and implantation of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators.
I am accredited by the British Society of Echocardiography (BSE) in adult trans-thoracic echocardiography and Heart Rhythm UK (HRUK - devices).
I qualified from Manchester medical school in 2003, where I also studied in Lausanne, Switzerland in my final year. I was awarded membership to the royal college of physicians in 2006. I completed an international fellowship in cardiac rhythm management in Wellington, New Zealand in 2011 and was awarded a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Southampton in 2017 for research undertaken in subcutaneous implantable cardioverter. I was appointed as a consultant cardiologist at Worcester Royal Hospital in 2016.
I have been appointed as the Associate Medical Director for research and development at the Worcestershire Acute Hospital Trust and I have published over 20 articles in peer-reviewed medical journals, presented my research at international medical conferences and authored chapters in medical textbooks. I am also actively involved in medical training and work regularly with the British Cardiac Society as part of their simulator training program.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr David Wilson at Spire include:
I am the Associate Medical Director for research and development at the Worcester Acute Hospital. My specific research interests include subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillators, atrial fibrillation and risk prediction modelling.
I have travelled extensively, having been brought up in eastern and southern Africa and I am bilingual (French and English). Outside of work I enjoy cycling and tennis. I regularly play guitar and I also enjoy gardening when I am not with my wife and three children.
