Dr Richard Oliver



Specialises in

  • Heart disease
  • Chest pain
  • Hypertension
  • Acute coronary syndrome

I am a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist and specialise in echocardiography, coronary artery disease, acute cardiac chest pain/angina and acute myocardial infarction.

I have a special interest in acute myocardial infarction, thrombolysis and the management of acute coronary syndromes. I have extensive experience in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and look forward to contributing to the expansion of this service in patients requiring coronary artery revascularisation.

I was appointed consultant cardiologist at the Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust, Suffolk in August 1993. While providing a local cardiological service to a large district general hospital, I provided all invasive and interventional cardiological services to the local population of East Suffolk with sessional commitments at Papworth Hospital, Cambridge. I qualified from St George's Hospital Medical School, London in 1980 and began my cardiological training as Cardiology Research Fellow at Southampton University in 1987. My DM thesis involved the use of radionuclide techniques in the assessment of right ventricular function. I was Registrar and later Senior Registrar at University College London Hospitals NHS Trust.
