Dr Tim Cripps DM FRCP

Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist


Thank you for visiting my website.


I am the Senior Consultant Cardiologist at Bristol Heart Institute and work in the NHS but also treat Private Patients at Spire Hospital Bristol.

I have nearly 20 years' experience in dealing with heart rhythm disorders including extensive experience with ablation and pacemaker/ICD procedures including biventricular (CRT) devices amounting to several thousand cases. However, I also see patients with a wide range of conditions including chest pain, palpitations, breathlessness, high blood pressure, heart murmurs and any other symptoms suggestive of heart trouble and so can put the need for modern invasive treatment into persepctive. I work closely with colleagues in a large Department at Bristol Heart Institute so can always obtain help from colleagues if needed. I also do medicolegal work.  


About me

I have been a Consultant cardiologist in Bristol for 16 years, having trained in Cambridge, Oxford, London and Sydney, Australia.

I provide a comprehensive diagnostic and therapuetic service. Consultations are the key since many conditions are only diagnosed when a careful history is taken by a Specialist who sees dozens of patients with heart trouble every week.

Comprehensive spectrum of investigations

However tests also may be required and I can arrange any modern cardiological investigation, either at my clinic at the Spire Hospital Bristol or via the Bristol Heart Institute
