    Place of primary qualification: University of London

    Dr Guy Lloyd is a Consultant Cardiologist based at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London and Eastbourne, UK. He sees patients for both primary consultation in all aspects of cardiac disease and also for specialist imaging. He has a specialist interest in heart valve disease, pioneering the concept of valve clinics in the UK.

    Dr Lloyd qualified from Guy’s and St Thomas’ in 1991, underwent training in cardiology in the same hospitals and was appointed as Consultant in Eastbourne in 2002. He was recruited to establish the echocardiography lab at the new Barts Heart Centre in 2015 which is the largest lab in the UK, he also supervises the service at University College Hospitals London.

    Dr Lloyd has a wide academic and research interest in the field of cardiac imaging and heart valve disease with a broad range of projects on the go including in collaboration with the British Heart Foundation. He is a past President of the British Society of Echocardiography, one of the founding council of the British Heat Valve Society, recently chaired the Imaging Council of the British Cardiovascular Society and has served on its council.

    Frequently asked questions

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    Primary presentations are breathlessness, chest pain, palpitations, collapses or loss of consciousness or sometimes because they are concerned about the cardiac risk or have had a finding such as a heart murmur discovered in primary care that would call for an investigation.

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    I offer diagnoses; medical treatments; optimisation of medical treatment; and working within referral pathways, referrals for cardiac surgery, intervention, electrophysiology and so forth.

  • What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?

    My subspecialist interest includes cardiac imaging, with a particular focus on echocardiography and all its forms, including exercise echocardiography and exercise physiology as well as cardiopulmonary exercise testing. I am specialised in all areas of cardiology, including heart failure, chest pain and coma, palpitations, arrhythmia and atrial fibrillation, but also with a particular interest in heart valve disease. Heart valve disease is my main subspecialty interest within cardiology.

    Hence heart valve disease, heart failure and general cardiology including cardiac risk.
