Dr Simon Horner won a scholarship (top 10%) to study medicine at Cambridge University and during his clinical training won a prize in clinical medicine and surgery.
He then worked at several London teaching hospitals. Initially in General Medicine at The London Hospital and Kings College Hospital. After the usual core medical training he chose to become a Cardiologist and worked at St Mary's Hospital London, The Middlesex Hospital and University College Hospital. Simon then spent 3 years researching cardiac rhythm disturbances in the British Heart Foundation Cardiac Arrhythmia Research Group. Subsequently he became a Senior Registrar in Cardiology, at Manchester Royal Infirmary (Manshester Heart Centre).
He set up and was editor in chief of a journal of echocardiography/cardiac imaging. He also spent 18 months in the Heart Centre at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation (rated as the top heart unit in the USA for the last 25 years) as a cardiologist performing coronary angioplasty/stenting before returning to the UK where he was then appointed a consultant cardiologist in Manchester in 1999. Simon now has in excess of 30 yearsexperience of clinical medicine and cardiology. Also he is accredited to practice across the full range of cardiological and non-cardiological medical conditions.
This experience is in all clinical settings from emergency departments to outpatients. As this experience has been in busy clinical posts he has now had more than 100,000 consultations with patients and so has extensive experience of clinical diagnosis and treatment. He is to some extent a doctor’s doctor-both GPs and consultants ask him to treat themselves and their families. He has GPs, consultant surgeons, consultant physicians and professors of various branches of clinical medicine as patients. So, doctors trust him with their own and their family’s health.
