About me

Dr Graham Cole is a Consultant Cardiologist based at the world-famous Hammersmith Hospital, part of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. He practises privately at convenient London locations including 68 Harley Street, 78 Harley Street, Imperial College Healthcare and Chenies Mews Imaging Centre.

He has broad expertise in assessing patients with shortness of breath, chest pain, palpitations, dizziness, collapses and ankle swelling. He also has expertise in assessing cardiovascular risk, and assessing patients needing surgery to minimise their risk.

He is a sub-specialist in cardiac imaging, being extensively trained and accredited in using modern techniques (echo, cardiac MRI, cardiac CT) to invstigate patients painlessly and non-invasively. He has additional expertise in heart failure.

Dr Cole qualified from Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge University in 2005, achieving a First Class Honours degree in Natural Sciences. He went on to achieve the very unusual feat of Distinctions in every area of his final medical examinations at Cambridge University. He subsequently completed the Hammersmith medical rotation as a junior doctor, followed by a further decade of specialist cardiology training in the prestigious North-West Thames rotation. This included a four year fellowship in cardiac MRI at the world-leading Heart Hospital Imaging Centre under Prof James Moon, the London CT Fellowship and a PhD in echocardiography.

He has a track record of publishing research that matters to patients. Highlights include developing ways to help patients make individualised decisions about the pros and cons of different treatments, and developing imaging techniques to be able to make precise diagnoses and know when a patient's condition has changed.

Patients can be assured he has a meticulous approach to making sure they receive the best treatment based on good evidence - he has previously spotlighted and successfully campaigned to change potentially harmful clinical guidelines used by thousands of doctors that were based on unreliable research.

He prides himself on a caring but no-nonsense approach, with clear explanations tailored to individual patients.
