It’s Tinnitus Awareness Week from 6–12 February and tinnitus expert Mrs Fiona Bateson wants to shout from the rooftops
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Philip Moore at Spire include:
Interventional cardiology, hypertension, echocardiography, coronary artery disease, arrhythmia (electrophysiology)
I am a consultant cardiologist at West Herts Hospitals NHS Trust and Bart's Heart Centre and am a specialist in implantable cardiac devices (pacemakers, implantable defibrillators and biventricular pacing).
I have extensive experience in all aspects of general cardiology and teach nationally and internationally especially in the fields of pacing and ECG (electrocardiography).
I specialise in heart rhythm disorders and see patients with a wide range of symptoms including palpitations, dizzy spells and blackouts. I implant pacemakers and defibrillators and supervise long term follow-up and programming. I undertake complex device procedures and extractions at Bart's Heart Centre.
I also see patients with chest pain, shortness of breath and other cardiac symptoms and perform non-invasive investigations such as echocardiography (ultrasound of heart), ECG, and invasive investigations such as coronary angiography.
In addition to my clinical work, I am heavily involved in the training of cardiology junior doctors and teach regularly on the specialist registrar training days. I am the course organiser for ECG training courses for doctors, nurses and paramedics and teach extensively on pacemaker training courses nationally and internationally. I sit on both the British Heart Rhythm Society and European Heart Rhythm Association Certification committees which oversee training standards and set accreditation exams.
