About me

Dr Simon Horner is a consultant cardiologist in Manchester. He won a scholarship (top 10%) to study medicine at Cambridge University and during his clinical training won a prize in clinical medicine and surgery. He then worked at several London teaching hospitals, namely University College Hospital, Kings College Hospital, St Mary’s Hospital, The Middlesex Hospital and The London Hospital. Simon then spent 3 years researching cardiac rhythm disturbances in the British Heart Foundation Cardiac Arrhythmia Research Group publishing research in the leading cardiac journals. He then became Senior Registrar in Cardiology, at Manchester Royal Infirmary. Simon set up, and was editor in chief of a journal of echocardiography/cardiac imaging. He spent 18 months working as a heart specialist at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Ohio, USA (rated as the top heart unit in the USA for the last 25 years) performing coronary angioplasty/stenting before returning to the UK where he was then appointed a consultant in Manchester in 1999.

Simon now has in excess of 30 years experience of clinical medicine and cardiology and is registered to practice across the full range of cardiological and non-cardiological medical conditions. This experience is across the full range of clinical settings from emergency departments to outpatients. As this experience has been in busy clinical posts he has now had more than 100,000 consultations with patients and so has extensive experience of clinical diagnosis and treatment.

He is to some extent a doctor's doctor-both GPs and consultants ask him to treat themselves and their families. He has GPs, consultant surgeons, consultant physicians and professors of various branches of clinical medicine as patients. So doctors trust him with their own and their families health.
