Professional Profile

Dr David Hildick-Smith has been a Consultant Cardiologist at the Sussex Cardiac Centre for 15 years, a national centre of excellence for cardiovascular care.

At the Spire Montefiore Hosiptal, he has an outpatient clinic every Tuesday afternoon and sees a variety of patients, from the "worried well" to those with life-threatening heart conditions.

If tests are needed, he will do an electrocardiogram (ECG) or ultrasound scan (Echocardiogram) during the same consultation so that repeat visits are kept to a minimum.
