He is also an integral part of the Regional Leeds inherited cardiovascular conditions service and the Leeds Regional Combined Cardiology and Obstetrics service, with expertise in the management of patients with rare inherited cardiac conditions and women with heart disease in pregnancy.

Dr Simms qualified in Medicine from Leeds in 2002 and completed his MD research from the University of Leeds in 2012. During his specialist training he undertook clinical fellowship posts at The Cardiomyopathy Unit, Heart Hospital, London and The Advanced Heart Failure Unit, Wythenshawe, Manchester.

Dr Simms has published several peer reviewed research articles and remains active in clinical research particularly in heart failure and inherited cardiovascular conditions.
