Dr Sue Ellery trained at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School, London, qualifying in 1997. She completed her Basic Medical Training at St George’s Hospital, London before going to the Royal Brompton Hospital.
Dr Ellery’s Cardiology Specialist training was in the South Thames region, completing her training at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, where she was appointed as Consultant Cardiologist in February 2010. She is the Trust Lead for Heart Failure and Pacing, in which she sub-specialises.
Dr Ellery has developed a holistic, multi-disciplinary approach to care, drawing upon the pharmacological, electrical and emotional support that is crucial to all patients, in particular heart failure patients. She believes she can offer this approach to the highest standard.
Working closely with specialist teams with respect to pharmacological management and device optimisation of heart failure patients, Dr Ellery has a particular interest in the implantation and optimization of pacemakers, especially Biventricular and Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator devices.
Dr Ellery has gained extensive experience in all aspects of cardiology, and is also accredited as a General Medical Physician.
Her theoretical knowledge and clinical experience is maintained to a high standard through continuing professional development, as a result of attendance at regional, national and international meetings, as a delegate and faculty member.
Dr Ellery has a young family who take up most of her time, but she also enjoys running, pilates, skiing and travelling.
