I have been a Consultant Cardiologist at Papworth Hospital, Cambridge, for 15 years. Whilst a general cardiologist, my subspecialty interest is coronary intervention ie coronary stenting to relieve angina and treat acute heart attacks. I am also trained in specialised techniques to treatcalcified and chronically blocked (occluded) arteries. My results are exemplary when compared to national standards.
I specialise in coronary angiography and intervention (angioplasty and stenting) for coronary artery disease. I use imaging techniques to guide the appropriateness of intervention where benefit not clear. With a colleague, I undertake complex coronary intervention and, in particular, for chronically occluded arteries. We work together as a team using latest techniques to open these vessels. We have exemplary outcomes.
In the early years of my career I performed a significant volume of procedures annually- up to 750 coronary interventional procedures in a year. Due to acute interventional rotas and the increasing complexity of some of the procedures I now undertake around 250 coronary interventional procedures in a year which is still considered high volume, more than the national average, and with exemplary outcomes. I am a highly experienced coronary intervention operator and am able to draw on all imaging, assessment and treatment modalities available to treat coronary artery disease, even the most complex of cases. Please note that complex cases are always discussed in a multi-disciplinary team to explore all treatment options.
I am Clinical Director for Strategic Development at Papworth Hospital leading on external facing strategic projects for Papworth. In 2016, I was appointed Lead for the Cardiology Workstream of the Peterborough and Cambridge Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) reviewing cardiology pathways across the CCG to streamline, improve quality and reduce repetition and unwarranted variation. In 2017, I was appointed joint National Lead for Cardiology for the GIRFT programme (Getting IT Right First Time) to improve quality and reduce unwarranted variation across cardiology units in the NHS.
I am proud to be the first female President of the British Cardiovascular Society. I am also a member of Council to the Royal College of Physicians (London), Governor of the GB and Irish Chapter of the American College Cardiology (ACC), European Representative at the Assembly of International Governors of the ACC, Chair of the successful ACC International Centres of Excellence Programme, International Member of the Women in Cardiology Leadership Council at the ACC promoting diversity in the workplace. Councillor to the Board of the European Society of Cardiology and chair of the ESC e-Communications Committee.
