Dr. Stephen Campbell qualified at King’s College Hospital Medical School, University of London. After both house jobs at King’s, Dr. Campbell trained in General Medicine at Hammersmith Hospital, London, Oxford University Hospitals and then back at King’s College Hospital, London, where he also started training in Cardiology. Dr. Campbell then held clinical and research posts in King’s, Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA. He then returned to Oxford University Hospitals as Senior Registrar in Cardiology and subsequently obtained my substantive post as a Consultant Cardiologist at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals at the South Yorkshire Regional Cardiothoracic Centre at the Northern General Hospital, in 1989.
Dr. Campbell was Clinical Director of the Unit for a total of 10 years. He was also a National Clinical Lead for Coronary Heart Disease during part of this time. Following on from that Dr. Campbell was Director of the Coronary Care Unit at NGH and was a fully trained Interventional Cardiologist, introducing many new developments in this field into his practice. He started the regional programme for treatment of myocardial infarction (heart attack) by primary angioplasty (Primary PCI) in Sheffield.
Dr. Campbell has extensive experience in research, teaching and training. And indeed, after he retired from the NHS in 2016, he was invited to continue teaching medical students at the University of Sheffield and awarded the title of Emeritus Professor. He has continued in private practice in General Cardiology and Coronary and Valvular Heart Disease at Thornbury Hospital, doing a weekly outpatient clinic but no longer practices interventional cardiology.
