Guy Haywood MD FRCP

Consultant Cardiologist

Specialist in Adult Cardiology with a focus on heart rhythm problems and coronary artery disease

Welcome

I am a specialist in Adult Cardiology dealing with all types of heart disease, but focusing on two main areas: heart rhythm problems and coronary artery disease.

I work in Plymouth in the South West of the UK at the South West Cardiothoracic Centre, University Hospitals Plymouth (Derriford), Plymouth and my consulting rooms are at the Peninsula Heart Clinic and at the Plymouth Nuffield Hospital.

I trained in the investigation and treatment of heart disorders at St. George’s Hospital, London, Stanford University Hospital Medical School, California and The Wessex Cardiothoracic Centre, Southampton University Hospital. In November 1996 I started work as a Consultant Cardiac Electrophysiologist and Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at Derriford Hospital Plymouth, now renamed University Hospitals Plymouth. I helped to set up the South West Cardiothoracic Centre – the Cardiac Surgery centre for Devon and Cornwall; it opened for catheter ablation of cardiac arrhythmias, coronary angioplasty (percutaneous coronary intervention PCI) and cardiac surgery on November 1st 1997.

The range of facilities and treatments offered at the centre have continued to expand since this time and I have visited centres in France, Germany, Italy, the USA and the UK to gain experience with the use of technologies that we are now using in Plymouth. This has enabled us to establish complex procedures such as electro-anatomical mapping for the treatment of heart rhythm problems and to introduce the atrial fibrillation ablation program in Devon and Cornwall.

I have been greatly assisted in this by the fund raising activities of Hearts Together, the patient support group and charity for which I acted as Principal Clinical Advisor, working on behalf of the Cardiac Unit in Plymouth.

I have served as a member of the Executive Council of the Arrhythmia Alliance heart rhythm charity, and I represented the South West on the National Specialist Commissioning advisory body for Cardiology (CRG). Previously I have served on the Heart Rhythm UK (now BHRS – British Heart Rhythm Society ) Council, acted as the Secretary to the UK Interventional Cardiac Electrophysiology Society and been a member of the Department of Health’s Expert Group on Cardiac Arrhythmias.

I have been a Faculty presenter at the British Cardiovascular Intervention Society Advanced Angioplasty meetings. For several years I was Training Program Director for Cardiologists in Training in the south West Peninsula, served as Chairman of the Seciality Training Commitee and represented the South West at the JRCPTB Specialty Advisory Committee for the supervision of Cardiology training in the UK.

I act as an Advisory Consultant to a number of Medical Device and Pharmaceutical Companies helping to develop the next range of therapies for heart diseases.
