Dr Peter Golledge
MBChB, MRCP, FRCP
I am Consultant Cardiologist at The Royal Hampshire County Hospital, Winchester and at The Wessex Cardiothoracic Unit, Southampton University Hospital. I was appointed to my consultant post in 2004.
As well as general adult cardiology, my interests are invasive cardiology, coronary artery disease, cardiac and cardio-renal failure, hypertension, transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography and cardiac pacing.
I qualified from Manchester University in 1989 and undertook clinical training in cardiothoracic and transplantation medicine at Wythenshawe Hospital, South Manchester, before embarking on general internal medicine training in Stoke-on-Trent towards obtaining Membership of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP) in 1993. Further training in nephrology followed this in Sydney, Australia, followed by postgraduate cardiology training at St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London Hospital’s and The London Chest Hospital.
I spent two years in research as British Heart Foundation Junior Fellow at Charterhouse Square, University of London and The London Chest Hospital, addressing free radical species, nitric oxide generation and platelet activation during coronary angioplasty. The final part of my registrar training involved supervision of the cardiovascular assessment to high risk obstetrics at The Royal London Hospital and management of complex hypertension.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Peter Golledge at Spire include:
Peter’s wife is a GP and they have three active young children and live just north of Winchester. He is a keen cyclist, runner and swimmer but alas, his competitive football days are probably over. He is passionate about the mountains and ski touring.
