Dr Andrew Flett MBBS BSc(hons) MRCP MD(res) CCDS is a consultant cardiologist with a specialist interest in heart failure, advanced pacing and cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging working at University Hospital Southampton. He also holds a weekly clinic and ward round at Lymington Hospital as a visiting cardiologist. He trained at St Georges Hospital Medical School and graduated in 2001. He worked as a junior doctor in the south of England before commencing cardiology training in the London Deanery. He undertook much of his training at The Heart Hospital which is part of University College London Hospital and is a national referral centre for heart muscle disease. During his heart failure training he specialised in advanced pacemaker/defibrillator therapy (acquiring the internationally recognised Certified Cardiac Device Specialist accreditation) and cardiomyopathy at the Heart Hospital.
Andrew Flett’s interests include general cardiology and permanent pacemaker implantation. His special interests include cardiomyopathy (heart muscle disease), cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, cardiac resynchronisation therapy (a specialised form of pacemaker designed to improve heart function) and defibrillator implantation (a device to prevent sudden death). He is the elected chairman of the web committee for the international Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance.
