I specialise in all aspects of general cardiology including investigation and management of breathlessness, chest pain, palpitations, arrhythmias, AF, blackouts, dizziness and fainting. My major sub-specialist interests are heart failure, rhythm abnormalities, blackouts, pacemakers/ICDs.
I grew up in Nottingham, graduated from Birmingham University and worked in Birmingham, Newcastle and Nottingham prior to starting specialist training in Newcastle and Middlesbrough. I completed a period of research in remote monitoring of pacemakers and defibrillators at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle.
I undertook sub-specialist training at Freeman hospital in advance heart failure, cardiac transplant assessment, rhythm disorders, and complex device therapy for heart failure (pacemakers, ICDs, CRRT-D).
I was appointed as Consultant Cardiologist with an interest in heart failure and pacing at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in 2014 and I am the lead for heart failure services at the Trust. My NHS practice is based at King's Mill Hospital and Newark Hospitals. I have a major interest in teaching and training and I am the lead for educational supervision in cardiology.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Iftikhar Fazal at Spire include:
