Personal profile

Dr Nicholas Pegge is a Consultant Cardiologist practicing in Sussex. His substantive NHS consultant appointment is at Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust which comprises Worthing Hospital, St Richard's Hospital, Chichester, and Southlands Hospital. 

He sees patients with a wide range of heart problems, and undertakes a range of treatments including cardiac catheterisation, coronary angioplasty and stenting, pacemaker implantation, ICD implantation and cardiac re-synchronisation therapy on both NHS and private patients at Worthing Hospital.

Dr Pegge also practices as consultant cardiologist at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals, where he performs both elective and emergency coronary angioplasty and stenting for ischaemic heart disease including angina, acute coronary syndromes and primary PCI for heart attack - ST elevation MI.

Dr Pegge was educated at St Ambrose College, in Cheshire, then at Jesus College, Cambridge and St Thomas' Hospital, UMDS, London. After qualification in 1993, he trained first in general medicine in London, then specialised in cardiology, training in Swansea; at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff; and at the Klinikum der Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität (University Hospital) Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany, where he undertook a Fellowship in Interventional Cardiology under Professor Andreas Zeiher in 2003. Regular attendance at international scientific and medical meetings, and participation in local and regional clinical governance, helps to keep Dr Pegge up to date with the latest advances in cardiology, and maintain clinical standards. Some of Dr Pegge's patients are approached to be recruited into ongoing research studies.

He is the local principal investigator for a number of large, randomised trials of new therapies, and collaborates with other researchers at the Sussex Cardiac Centre.

He also provides expert witness reports for insurance, regulatory and legal purposes. He has been a consultant cardiologist in Sussex since 2004, living locally, and is married to a local GP.
