Dr Robert Mcintosh
MB ChB, BSc(Hons), EEGC, MD, FRCP
I specialise in all aspects of general cardiology. My major sub-specialty interest is in coronary artery disease and treatment of the condition with coronary artery angioplasty (stent placement). I also hold special interest in the management of heart rhythm disorders and heart failure. When it is required, I provide treatment with cardiac rhythm management devices such as pacemakers, cardiac resynchronisation therapy and defibrillators.
I completed my medical degree in Scotland in 2003 and undertook the majority of my cardiology sub-specialty training in London. During this period I trained in internationally recognised centres of excellence, including Imperial College and The Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Trust. Prior to being appointed as a consultant in the UK I spent two years completing international fellowships in Wellington, NZ (Cardiac Electrophysiology and Complex Cardiac Device Implantation) and in Waikato, NZ (Coronary Artery Intervention and Structural Heart Disease).
My cardiac research interests include heart failure and coronary artery disease. I previously received recognition as ‘Scientific investigator of the Year,’ by the British Society of Echocardiography for work in the field.
I am happy to see patients with all routine cardiac complaints or those who are experiencing suspected cardiac symptoms such as chest pain, palpitations, ankle swelling, breathlessness, dizziness or faints.

Having moved to the East Midlands in 2015 I live in a village in Derbyshire with my wife and three children. I have a son and two non-identical twin girls.
In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors and walking in particular. I have previously spent time exploring the mountains of Scotland, Wales, the Alps and the Himalayas. I recently learnt to sail and am very keen to do more of this in future. I also have an amateur interest in building restoration and conservation.
