About me

Dr Clapp attended medical school at Cambridge University and University College London before completing his general medical training in teaching hospitals around the capital.

Using a British Heart Foundation Fellowship he was awarded a PhD from the University of London into the links between inflammation and acute cardiac events; a continued active research interest.

He completed his specialist training in Cardiology with a particular emphasis on coronary and structural intervention in 2005 and was appointed Consultant Cardiologist and Honorary Senior Lecturer at Guys and St Thomas’ Hospital.
