Personal profile

After Dr Benjamin Brown 's graduation from Leeds Medical School, Ben obtained competitive jobs in the Yorkshire region completing his medical exams on the first attempt. Dr Brown was then awarded a prestigious British Cardiac Society fellowship to support his research degree looking at the role of genetics in premature heart disease.

His research findings were presented at national and international meetings and he was selected to represent his hospital for a visit to Downing Street recognising “excellence in the NHS”. He then obtained a place as a cardiology registrar in the Yorkshire Deanery. The final years of his training were spent specialising in electrophysiology and culminated in a fellowship at Wythenshawe Hospital.

In addition to his clinical duties, Ben is heavily involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and leads the audit of the pacing and ablation service at Wythenshawe. He has active research projects looking at how best to measure patient experience and the optimal way to pace the heart. He is also on the panel of the medicines management committee to ensure the safe adoption of new medicines within Wythenshawe.
