    About

    Consultant cardiologist Dr Ahsan is based at St Bartholomew’s Hospital where he is also the training lead for the heart rhythm unit at Barts Health Centre. He also sees patients at North Middlesex University Hospital and was responsible for implementing the arrhythmia service there. 

    Dr Ahsan takes pride in putting his patients first and conducts thorough assessments, fully informing his patients of their treatment options. He treats a range of cardiac symptoms, such as blackouts, chest pains, dizziness, and high blood pressure. He also uses the latest technology available to perform both basic and complex catheter ablation treatments for all arrhythmias (including atrial fibrillation). In addition, Dr Ahsan specialises in cardiac device implantation including pacemaker, defibrillator, and cardiac resynchronisation therapy. 

    Dr Ahsan gained his medical qualification from Guy's, King's, and St Thomas' Medical School before undertaking his specialist cardiology training and completing a fellowship in cardiac electrophysiology and cardiac devices at the Heart Hospital. He also earned an MD from University College London, where his research investigating techniques to improve outcomes in patients with cardiac rhythm devices earned him the Royal Society of Medicine National Prize. He remains active in research and is currently investigating novel methods for the treatment of atrial fibrillation.

    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.

    Previously we had followed standard protocols / procedures for the EPS and were only partially successful in identifying the cause of my SVT. On this occasion, Dr Ahsan and I discussed the options, and I identified my preference was to proceed without sedation for the EPS. I would like to thank Dr Ahsan for not only discussing this, but also accepting my thoughts / decision on the matter. My AVNRT issues would now appear to be resolved and I can return to my normal exercise routine, which I am very much looking forward to, so many thanks for that too.
