Dr Renjith Antony
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:
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.
I enjoy sports and play cricket and badminton. I love to travel and aim to complete all 7 continents in the next 10 years.
