Dr Shakeel Ahmad
Consultant Stroke Physician
I obtained my bachelor degree in Medicine and Surgery from Leeds University and then became a Member of the Royal College of Physicians in 2001 and a Fellow in 2013.
I spent three years as a clinical lecturer in stroke medicine at Kings College Hospital London, where I undertook hyperacute stroke training, obtaining a CCT in Stroke Medicine.
My research interest has been in ethnic differences in cortisol secretion and their relationship to vascular impairment.
In 2009 I was appointed as a Consultant Stroke Physician in Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, where I have taken the lead to develop daily TIA clinics, early supportive discharge (ESD) and mechanical thrombectomy service for stroke patients.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Shakeel Ahmad at Spire include:
