Professor Peter Groves
MBBS (Hons), MD, FRCP
I have been a Consultant Cardiologist for 23 years and therefore have extensive experience in assessing and treating the full range of cardiac conditions. As a general Cardiologist, I manage patients with coronary and valvular heart disease (chest pain, breathlessness and heart murmurs) as well as those presenting with heart rhythm disturbances (palpitations) and heart failure (breathlessness and swelling). As an Interventional Cardiologist, my sub-specialist expertise is in the minimally invasive diagnosis and treatment of cardiac disease.
As an Interventional Cardiologist, I treat patients with coronary heart disease (coronary angiography and coronary angioplasty with stenting), valvular heart disease (TAVI and mitral balloon valvuloplasty) and congenital heart disease (ASD and PFO closure).
I am the Lead Clinician for Structural Heart Disease Intervention at Cardiff and Vale UHB, the tertiary referral centre for South-East Wales.
I was Director of Cardiothoracic Services at Cardiff and Vale UHB 2002-09.
Research interests: I have a longstanding interest in scientific and clinical medical research. I have published numerous papers in peer-reviewed journals and have presented lectures to many National and International Medical meetings.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Professor Peter Groves at Spire include:
MBBS with Honours / University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne / 1984
Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery
I am Chair of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Medical Technologies Advisory Committee (MTAC). This national Committee is responsible for identifying and promoting new medical technologies that will benefit patients and the healthcare system.
I represent Welsh Government on the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency) Devices Expert Advisory Committee (DEAC). This committee provides expert advice on medical device regulation.
I have featured in two series of the BBC TV Series Hospital 24/7 undertaking cardiac procedures:
Consultant Cardiologist, Cardiff and Vale University Health Board
Honorary Lecturer, Cardiff University
I enjoy spending my leisure time with my wife, family and ageing Labrador dog. We have a shared interest in walking, travelling, and sport. Music-making is an important source of pleasure and relaxation. If you would like to see me in action, you can view my video
