    Dr Brian Clapp is a Consultant Cardiologist and Senior Lecturer based at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and he also sees patients privately, including at The London Bridge Hospital. He provides a service in both general cardiology, including cardiovascular risk assessment and hypertension and specifically, interventional and structural cardiology. He has expertise in all areas of coronary intervention (angioplasty) including physiological and anatomical assessment of lesion severity. His experience also includes the assessment and closure of atrial septal defects and patent foramen ovale, including for cryptogenic strokes.

    He has a further interest in the interaction between diving medicine and cardiology and is on the Health and Safety Executive register of secondary specialists with an interest in diving. Dr Clapp attended medical school at Cambridge University and University College London and then undertook training in teaching hospitals around the capital. Through a British Heart Foundation Fellowship, he attained a PhD from the University of London based on research into links between inflammation and acute cardiac events, which is a continued research interest.
