Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Matthew Faircloth at Spire include:
Dr Faircloth qualified from St George's Hospital Medical School, gaining a number of prizes, before undertaking junior posts at St George's, the Royal Brompton and Hammersmith Hospitals. He started his registrar training at Frimley Park Hospital in 1999 before going on to St George's. He was awarded a personal BHF Fellowship to research the molecular basis of ischaemic heart failure at St Thomas' Hospital, leading to the award of a PhD. He then completed his training with a fellowship in interventional cardiology back at St George's Hospital. He was appointed as a consultant cardiologist at Frimley Park and at St George’s Hospitals in 2008.
All aspects of general cardiology including: • Ischaemic heart disease (chest pain) • Coronary intervention (angioplasty and stenting) • Hypertension (high blood pressure) • Heart failure • Cardiac pacing and arrhythmias
Dr Faircloth runs his clinics as often as possible as “one-stop” clinics with tests being performed on the day to enable a swift and efficient diagnostic process. ECGs, echocardiograms, exercise tests and cardiac monitors can often be arranged at the time of the first visit. He runs two to three clinics per week and with a very friendly and helpful PA (Deborah Squire) will always try to accommodate patients as soon as possible.
Dr Faircloth is recognised by all the major insurance companies and meets their fee requirements (he does not bill in excess of the companies’ recommended fee levels). Approved companies include: BUPA, AXA-PPP, Aviva, WPA, Exeter.
He is often described by his patients as being a good and careful listener, which is crucial in gaining a swift and accurate diagnosis. He is an experienced and highly capable interventional cardiologist and his externally reviewed performance figures confirm excellent success rates and an excellent safety record. He is trusted by his colleagues for his clinical and interventional skills.
