Dr Chris Pepper
Consultant cardiologist and electrophysiologist
BSc MD FRCP
I was appointed as a consultant cardiologist in Leeds in 2001. I qualified with honours from Birmingham University in 1989. I completed my MD at the University of Wales College of Medicine in Cardiff in 1994 and subsequently trained in cardiology in West Yorkshire and Sydney, Australia.
I have particular interest and expertise in the management of cardiac rhythm problems, including the use of catheter ablation in the treatment of arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation. I am also interested in the use of pacemakers and implantable defibrillators and biventricular pacing therapy for heart failure, having introduced this technology to Leeds in 2002.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Chris Pepper at Spire include:
Spire Leeds 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.
Consultant cardiologist, Leeds General Infirmary
I am married to a local general practitioner and our daughter was born in York in 1997. When time allows I enjoy hill walking, music and watching rugby.
