If you wish to see me as a patient, you need to ask your GP for a referral letter. Every patient has a right to see a Consultant under the Patients' Charter.
I see NHS patients in the Out-patient Department at Bristol Heart Institute.
We have a number of specialist non-consultant clinics so a referral from your GP may result in re-allocation to one of these: for example, if your main problem is chest pain, the chest pain clinic, or clinics for aplpitation and blackouts. Also, I may consider it sufficient to just to a test such as an echocardiogram to check out a murmur.
I see Private Patients at Spire Bristol Hospital "The Glen". My clinics are Tuesday afternoon, 1-6pm. You can make an appointment by telephoning the Spire Bookings Department. Please ensure if you are a new patient that if possible you have a copy of your GP's referral letter - it often has not arrived in time! Any problem making an appointment, call my PA Felicity Lambert or e mail me:
