Dr James Richard Wilkinson is a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist (heart specialist) based at Southampton and Lymington. He previously did procedure lists at Salisbury (2011-2014). His particular area of expertise is Coronary Intervention. He regularly treats heart attack patients as well as more stable patients. This involves fixing the arteries that supply your heart with small balloons and metal scaffolds called 'stents'. He specialises in doing this through the artery in the wrist (radial artery) as it is safer and more comfortable for patients. He has a particular interest in opening arteries that have been blocked a long time (chronic total occlusions). He also has a specialist interest in a specialist procedure to treat high blood pressure (called renal denervation) and has set up this new service in Southampton. He also inserts pacemakers and does angiograms. In addition to his procedure lists he also see's patients in clinic for evaluation of any symptoms that could be due to heart disease such as: breathlessness, chest pain, palpitations and blackouts. He is particularly interested in angina and new procedures to help this. He participates in a busy on-call rota for Southampton's heart attack service and does ward rounds. A majority of his work is NHS but he does see some patients privately at Southampton and Lymington. He participates in local research and education on a national level. NHS secretary: 023 8120 5918.

Extremely good consultation, including the two preliminary heart monitoring sessions with Dr Wilkinson's team. Very full explanations were given to me in detailed clear terms that me as a layman could understand, about my present medical condition and possibilities for how it could develop and treatments that would be available and might need to be employed. All my questions were answered comprehensively and following the appointment I feel confident about the future.
thank you for your time, clear explanation and for being very prompt. Peter
I was very impressed in the way Dr Wilkinson and his colleague Mr Rawlins did my stent procedure. I was treated with great respect and it as wonderful in the way the procedure was explained to me in simple layman terms, right from the beginning
