Dr Miles Dalby
Dr Miles Dalby was educated at Wells Cathedral School in Somerset prior to his medical training at St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in West London. During his training he undertook an intercalated BSc which provided the foundation for his long term interest in both clinical patient care and research. Dr Dalby undertook his postgraduate MD thesis at the Royal Brompton Hospital from 1997 to 1999 and investigated blood clotting mechanisms in the heart, drugs affecting clotting and how these interact with coronary angioplasty and stenting. The thesis is titled "Platelet function and ischaemic heart disease: studies in stable coronary artery disease and percutaneous intervention" and the post-graduate degree was awarded by the University of London in 2000. He undertook a fellowship in both clinical cardiology and related research at the Pitie Salpetriere Hospital in Paris from 2001 to 2002, and passed the subspeciality French DIU (Diploma Inter-Universitaire) in Interventional Cardiology in 2003. Dr Dalby trained in the North West Thames region, working at both St. Mary's and Harefield hospitals, attaining the CCST (Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training) in 2004. Dr Dalby was appointed as consultant cardiologist at the Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Trust in October 2005, and a senior lecturer at Imperial College in 2006. His aim is to combine both the provision of a top class clinical service and a dedicated programme of clinically based cardiological research. Dr Dalby holds his NHS outpatient clinic on a Wednesday morning at Harefield hospital. He works routinely in the Cardiac Catheter Laboratory on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
