About me

Dr d'Arcy is a Consultant Cardiologist,who sees patients with all general cardiology problems, such as chest pains, breathlessness, and palpitations. She has sub-specialty interests in Cardiovascular Imaging (echocardiography (including stress echo), and cardiac MRI) and Aviation Cardiology.

Dr d’Arcy has a breadth of experience across the field of cardiology, and sees patients with a wide variety of heart-related symptoms and conditions, for example chest pain, palpitations, breathlessness, dizziness, angina, heart failure, and heart valve conditions. Dr d’Arcy has extensive experience in cardiovascular imaging, which is an essential part of the diagnosis and optimal management in a broad range of heart conditions, including coronary artery disease, valve disease and heart failure. Dr d’Arcy has also undertaken research in echocardiography and cardiac MRI.

Through her involvement in Aviation Medicine, Dr d’Arcy has accrued a wealth of experience in Aviation Cardiology. She is familiar with civilian and military requirements for licensing, for both pilots and ATCOs. She holds the Diploma in Aviation Medicine, and regularly teaches on a variety of Av Med courses. She has presented at national and international meetings on Aviation Cardiology, and is part of an international working group developing guidelines in this area. Dr d’Arcy can assess and investigate aircrew and controllers required by the relevant licensing authorities, with access to a wide range of diagnostic techniques. Dr d’Arcy’s familiarity with the requirements of reports for aircrew ensures that all of the necessary information required for re-licensing is conveyed promptly, minimising the delays in aircrew returning to work.

Dr d’Arcy qualified from the University of Edinburgh Medical School, and undertook her specialist training in Oxford. She holds a consultant post with Oxford University Hospitals, and works at both the John Radcliffe Hospital and the Horton Hospital in this capacity. She has published papers in the fields of Aviation Cardiology, Military Medicine, Valvular Heart Disease, and Cardiac MRI.

In her limited spare time, Dr d'Arcy dabbles in triathlon, and loves to put her feet up and enjoy a good book at the end of a long day.
