Dr Raj Chelliah
I am a Consultant Cardiologist and provide a comprehensive consultation to my patients. I am happy to assess patients with chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness/funny turn, blackout, palpitations, heart failure, high blood pressure and risk factor management.
I graduated from the University of Dundee in 2002 and went on to work in Dundee and Edinburgh. Upon completion of MRCP in 2005, I undertook cardiac research at the University of Edinburgh, before moving south to undergo cardiology training in Hull and East Yorkshire in 2009.
I have a keen interest in structural and complex coronary intervention, and was successful in obtaining a Trans-Catheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) Fellowship at Kings’ College Hospital, London. Following this, I was then appointed Consultant Cardiologist at Castle Hill Hospital in 2016, where I am currently a high-volume operator in coronary intervention, treating patients with heart attacks and stable coronary disease.
I chose to become a consultant in Hull as I saw the opportunity to further develop a very dynamic cardiac department, and expand services.
I also have an interest in medical education and training, and am currently the Training Programme Director for cardiology trainees within East Yorkshire.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Raj Chelliah at Spire include:
Spire Hull and East Riding Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
