Dr Gould was appointed as Consultant Cardiologist to Queen Mary’s Hospital in 1989. As there was initially no cardiology department he worked to build up an extensive cardiac department from scratch relying on generating income from non NHS sources as well as the Heartbeat appeal which he conceived and ran in the early 1990’s.
This allowed the department to be equipped with the state of the art monitoring and diagnostic equipment. In keeping with many other consultant cardiologists at that time he developed his angioplasty skills at the Brook and St Thomas’ hospitals.
As a consultant in a district general hospital he developed a wide experience in all aspects of cardiac care from heart attacks, angina, heart failure, heart valve problems, palpitations and hypertension.
Although Dr Gould has moved mainly into private practice, he has continued to have a role in supporting a local NHS cardiac centre by undertaking coronary angiography.
Whilst working in the NHS Dr Gould undertook diagnostic coronary angiography/stenting at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich and more complex cases St Thomas’.
In the private sector Dr Gould offers a comprehensive service and continuity of care including hospital in patient medical care as required.
