Dr Paul Haydock
Paul is a Consultant Cardiologist and Clinical Lead for Heart Failure at University Hospital Southampton (UHS). He read Medical Sciences at Emmanuel College, Cambridge before transferring to Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals’ School of Medicine for clinical training. He spent his early career in London, Kent and Melbourne, Australia, prior to taking his MD from Imperial College.
Paul completed his speciality training in the Wessex Deanery and was appointed to his current post in February 2017. His interests include cardiac complications of neuromuscular diseases, complex devices, and the impact of inequalities on cardiovascular disease – particularly focussed on the equitable provision of heart failure therapies within the population. He has worked with the British Heart Foundation to develop a digital tool for the use of heart failure services and their patients to deliver enhanced integrated care and has developed wider digital cardiology tools at UHS, following successful funding awards from NHS England and the @Home Programme.
Paul is experienced in all areas of general cardiology and his sub-speciality interests are in advanced heart failure, heritable cardiomyopathies, cardio-oncology, and device therapy. He implants pacemakers, including cardiac resynchronization therapy, as well as defibrillators, and is EHRA certified in Cardiac Implantable Electronic Devices.
He is passionate about supporting patients to make wise choices about their care and has led on the development of digitally supported shared decision-making processes within the Trust.
