General cardiology

It allows Dan to give a modern and expert opinion on a wide range of cardiological presentations including:

  • Chest pain
  • Breathlessness
  • Heart murmurs, valve disease

Dan provides expert cardiac sports advice, screening and assessment of symptoms to those of all abilities. He has worked with professional-club and international athletes and also helps to advise those with underlying cardiac conditions (e.g. after a heart attack or those with heart failure) to improve their exercise capacity and provide tailored exercise prescription.

Dan was one of the authors of the National guidelines on the screening of sports participants, published in 2018. This was a joint position paper from the British Society of Echocardiography and the charity Cardiac Risk In The Young.
