He was appointed as Senior Lecturer in Cardiology at the University of Leicester in 2002 and Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist at the University Hospitals of Leicester.

Dr Ng is an expert in the management of cardiac arrhythmias especially in catheter ablation and the use of mapping systems in such procedures.

He also specialises in device implantation including pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators and cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) devices.

Dr Ng has a distinguished research profile in investigations into cardiac electrophysiology and arrhythmia mechanisms, leading both non-clinical and clinical teams of talented researchers. He is also Director of pan-european training programmes on advanced three-dimensional mapping systems and arrhythmia ablation.

He recently pioneered the use of a new robotic catheter manipulation system and applied it in "world's first" treatment of patients with heart rhythm disturbances.
