About

Dr Francesco Lo Giudice is a consultant cardiologist at the Hammersmith Hospital. He graduated with honours from the University of Palermo, Italy, in 1992. He then undertook the specialist training in cardiology which he completed in 1998 with full marks. Subsequently, he spent 18 months at St. George’s Hospital Medical School in London as a research fellow in cardiology supported by grants from the Mediterranean Institute for Transplantation and Advanced Specialised Therapies and the British Heart Foundation. Upon his return to Italy, Dr Lo Giudice worked as a consultant cardiologist at San Raffaele-Giglio Hospital of Cefalu’ (200-2004) and at the University Hospital of Trieste (2004-2017) where he was in charge of the Pulmonary Hypertension Service at the cardiovascular department, but he has a vast experience in the field of cardiac intensive care and management of acute and chronic ischaemic heart disease, cardiomyopathies, advanced heart failure and complex arrhythmias. 

Dr Lo Giudice currently works in London at the Hammersmith Hospital since 2017, in the Cardiology department and he is part of the Pulmonary Hypertension National service team.

His private activity is carried out at Hammersmith Hospital (White City, London) and Dottore London clinic (Holborn, London).
Date and times can be agreed according to specific needs. Indeed, Dr Lo Giudice believes in the importance of a person-centered care and it would be useful to specify the reasons for the consultation when requesting an appointment.

My experience with Dr Lo Giudice has been super positive. The doctor has been very professional and willing to listen and to explain carefully. Having a problem of high blood pressure and being a person (and a patient) a bit anxious, I have really appreciated the patience and the calming attitude of Dr Lo Giudice, that has greatly helped me to relax and to explain all my symptoms and family medical history.

My Mum needed a cardiological consultation so we made an appointment with Dr Lo Giudice. We are very happy to have met him. He is very professional with a natural ability to put the patient at ease and his clear communication helps to understand the possible scenarios and root of the problem. Besides we had often to contact him by email for advice and he has always promptly replied to answer our queries. We highly recommend Dr Lo Giudice.

I was very pleased with my experience. Dr Lo Giudice treated me with care and professionalism. His explanations were very detailed and clear. I very soon felt I was in very good hands. After the visit, I received an email with all the information discussed with him. He was also willing to reply to my questions regarding some tests' results weeks after the visit. I highly recommend Dr Lo Giudice.
