Consultant Cardiologist and Cardiac Electrophysiologist
BSc (Hons), MBBS, PhD, FRCP, FESC, FHRS, SFHEA
Dr Fu Siong Ng is Consultant Cardiologist and Cardiac Electrophysiologist at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, and a clinical senior lecturer in cardiac electrophysiology at Imperial College London. He is a clinical academic and divides his time between treating patients with heart rhythm disorders, by performing invasive catheter ablation procedures and implanting pacemakers and defibrillators, and directing a programme of research into mechanisms of arrhythmias and developing novel treatments for his patients.
Dr Ng studied medicine at St. George’s, University of London between 1997 and 2003. He was awarded a first class (honours) BSc degree in medical sciences and clinical pharmacology, having ranked top in his year in multiple examinations, and then obtained distinctions at his final MBBS examinations. He then received his clinical training in cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology at several London hospitals, including Hammersmith and St Mary’s hospitals. Dr Ng was awarded his PhD by Imperial College London in 2012 after conducting studies into the effects of gap junction modulation on myocardial structure and function. He then spent a year conducting post-doctoral research in the USA, at Washington University in Saint Louis, conducting optical mapping experiments on explanted human hearts, before returning to Imperial, firstly as an NIHR clinical lecturer and now as a clinical senior lecturer and consultant cardiologist. Dr Ng is accredited as a cardiac electrophysiology specialist by the European Heart Rhythm Association, and is a fellow of the European Society of Cardiology. Dr Ng’s subspecialty is in cardiac electrophysiology and heart rhythm disorders. He performs catheter ablation procedures for a range of arrhythmias (e.g. atrial fibrillation, atrial tachycardias, atrial flutter, supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), ventricular ectopy/tachycardia) and implants implantable cardiac devices (e.g. pacemakers, defibrillators, loop recorders, biventricular pacemakers (CRT)).

Dr Ng is a Clinician Scientist and currently leads a programme of research into arrhythmogenic mechanisms alongside performing invasive ablation procedures and implanting pacemakers and defibrillators in patients with heart rhythm disorders. Dr Ng is also the Programme Director for the intercalated BSc in Cardiovascular Sciences at Imperial College London, and is the Divisional Research Lead for the Division of Emergency & Integrated Care at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Dr Ng leads a multidisciplinary research group that consists of clinicians, biologists, engineers, physicists, and AI-scientists. He currently supervises 3 post-doctoral research associates and 8 PhD students at Imperial. He has >100 peer-reviewed publications and 2 patents, and currently holds a 5-year British Heart Foundation Programme Grant (2022-2027, £1.2M) as PI.
