King's College Hospital is a major London teaching hospital situated in South East London. It is partnered with Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals, King's College London and South London and The Maudsley Hospital forming King's Health Partners, one of the UK's Academic Health Science Centres.
King's has an International reputation for many specialties, not least Cardiology. Cardiology at King's covers all aspects of adult cardiology including coronary intervention including structural cardiology (TAVI, PFO closure, left atrial appendage occlusion), electrophysiology, imaging (including cardiac MRI, CT and particularly echo) and heart failure.
Arrhythmia services are provided by five full-time Consultants, three visiting Consultants, junior medical staff and an expert nursing and technical team.
Recent years has seen the development of greater links between Cardiology and Neurology to form a Neurocardiology department. Many disorders cover both neurology and cardiology e.g. myopathy and are jointly managed. In particular, patients with dizziness and blackouts are managed jointly. This is particularly important in conditions such as fainting, PoTS, inappropriate sinus tachycardia and other autonomic problems.
