Dr Khalid Barakat
MA (Oxon), MD, MRCP, FRCP
I did my initial training in Oxford and London and qualified as a doctor in 1991. After further specialist study, I was appointed as an NHS Consultant Cardiologist for Ascot, Slough and the surrounding areas in 2003. Since then I have developed specialist interest in interventional cardiology, including angioplasty and permanent pacemaker implantation. More recently, I have developed an interest in the role of simulation based medical education.
In 2005, I co-founded Windsor Cardiology LLP with Dr Stephen Rex. The company was established to provide a local private interventional cardiology service to the community of Windsor and the surrounding areas of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. I am a member of the Bupa Consultant Partnership scheme.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Khalid Barakat at Spire include:
Spire Thames Valley 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.
