"I have held regular clinics at Spire Norwich Hospital for many years now and enjoy meeting my patients here."
I have been a consultant cardiologist since 2005 when I joined the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital. I trained at Oxford University before completing my cardiology training in London at the University College Hospital where I gained a PhD in "infective organisms and atherosclerosis". I spent two years at Columbia Medical Center in New York USA, as an Advanced Echocardiography Research Fellow working on the Northern Manhattan Stoke Study.
I specialise in heart failure, valvular heart disease, pacemakers, arrhythmias, palliative cardiac care, cardiac imaging and loop recorder insertions and removals. I have a special clinical interest in echocardiography, heart failure and stroke. Also work related licensing requirements such as carrying out medical assessments, reporting on echocardiograms, Dobutamine Stress echocardiograms, ECGs and exercise treadmill tests.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Cairistine Grahame-Clarke at Spire include:
• Dobutamine Stress Echocardiogram
• Exercise Treadmill Test
• Insertion of Loop Recorder
• Pace Maker Checks
• Transesophageal echocardiogram
Spire Norwich 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.
