    About

    Dr Malik has over 25 years worth of experience. 

    He is a Consultant Cardiologist working in London. He was appointed Consultant Cardiologist at St Mary’s Hospital and Honorary Senior Lecturer at Imperial College in 2003. Following the merger of St Mary’s, Hammersmith and Charing Cross Hospitals with Imperial College, he began to practice at all these hospitals. Dr Malik also sees patients privately.

    In 2010 he was appointed lead for the Heart Attack Treatment program, and in 2011, he became Director of the Cardiac Catheter Laboratories at Hammersmith Hospital. Dr Malik leads the large Heart Attack Centre (HAC) program at Hammersmith Hospital, delivering world class treatment to patients in West London.

    He is also Director of Structural Heart Disease at Hammersmith Hospital and regularly performs "live-cases" teaching doctors around the world. 

    Dr Malik is also Medical Director of One Welbeck Heart Health, and the London Cardiovascular Clinic.

    It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.

    I have seen Dr Malik before and trust his judgement. He has ensured that my problem has been monitored with a LINQ device and now he has reached a diagnosis and can’t treat my problem.

    Dr Malik’s care, professionalism and courtesy were faultless. He clearly explained my condition and the treatment options available and kept me fully briefed throughout the procedure and follow-up. I can unhesitatingly recommend him to any cardiac patient.

    He is very friendly, well experienced and knowledgeable and explains your prognosis in details and the patient and their family will feel very confident following a consultation. What I most like about Dr Malik he is family friendly, taking any questions from the family of the patient and assuring the comfort and reassurance the patient and their loved needs to hear during difficult times. I highly recommend him.

    I can only say that my experience with Dr Malik was exemplary. As a health care professional myself, I can evaluate the clinical expertise from Iqbal Malik and his well drilled team as outstanding. Add to that his confidence inspiring personality, I doubt that it could be bettered.
