About Dr David Begley

I graduated from Edinburgh Medical School in 1994 (MB ChB). Following completion of my residency in South East Scotland I spent 3 years at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland where I undertook research in the investigation and management of patients with the heart muscle condition, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, culminating in the completion of a research degree (MD) through the University of Edinburgh.

I returned to the UK in 2002 to complete specialist training in cardiology and cardiac rhythm management at the internationally respected Freeman Hospital in Newcastle.

Professional Experience

I was appointed a consultant in Cardiology at the internationally renowned Papworth Hospital in 2007 to expand the existing cardiac rhythm management team and elected Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 2009 (FRCP).

I was Clinical Lead for CRM from 2011 until 2016 during a period of rapid growth, maintaining the department’s position as one of the highest volume centres in the country for both electrophysiology studies and complex ablations, and cardiac device implants and have personally carried out thousands of these procedures.

Cardiac Rhythm Management

Cardiac rhythm management is the investigation and treatment of heart rhythm abnormalities (arrhythmias).

Arrhythmias most often cause an awareness of the heart beating (palpitations) but patients with arrhythmias may also have symptoms of fatigue, breathlessness, light-headedness or black-outs (syncope). I aim to quickly identify the cause of these worrying symptoms and provide reassurance or offer appropriate guided treatment.
