Dr Renjith Antony

Consultant Cardiologist

MBBS, MRCP


Specialises in

  • Heart failure
  • Pacemaker insertion
  • Cardiac devices

I am a consultant cardiologist with specialist interest in heart failure and cardiac devices, employed at Hull University Teaching Hospitals. I also provide heart failure services at Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Trusts. I am passionate about delivering high quality, efficient, patient centered care.

I see patients who present with a variety of cardiology symptoms including: breathlessness after activity or at rest, feeling tired most of the time and finding exercise exhausting, swollen ankles and legs.

 

I am trained as a specialist in heart failure. After successfully completing fellowship in advanced heart failure and cardiac transplantation at Scottish Advanced National Heart Failure Services, Golden Jubilee Hospital, Glasgow, I further enhanced my training and knowledge by undertaking a research fellowship in heart failure at Hull followed by subspecialty training in Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust.

I am also trained in cardiac devices and undertook a 1 year fellowship in the highest volume centre for cardiac devices in the UK, Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital. Once I was appointed as a consultant in heart failure and devices in Hull University Teaching Hospitals, I took the opportunity to develop an underdeveloped area of cardiology in Hull cardiac devices:

  • Established the first nurse/physiologist led loop implant service in Hull
  • Developed pathways that enabled patients to go home the same day after their devices procedure, saving time for patient and freeing up beds for hospital
  • Started the first sub-cutaneous ICD service
  • Recently established the pacemaker/defibrillator lead extraction services for East Yorkshire and Humber region
