Dr Chris Critoph
My name is Dr Chris Critoph, and I am a Consultant Cardiologist based in Bournemouth, Dorset. I trained in cardiology at major teaching hospitals in London and Australia, before moving to Dorset in 2015 with my wife and 2 children.
I am an expert in diagnosing and treating problems affecting the heart, and am one of the very few UK specialists trained in assessing patients with a family history of heart disease and sports cardiology.
I am clinical lead for heart failure at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital. I run rapid access clinics for patients with heart symptoms, such as chest pain, shortness of breath and palpitations.
I also run a specialist heart assessment clinic for patients with a family history of heart disease, even if they have no symptoms themselves.
I am responsible for training Cardiologists of the future.
Outside of the hospital, I love spending time with my family, and enjoy playing golf, tennis, football and cycling.
