Julian Collinson

Consultant Cardiologist



I am a leading cardiologist based in central London, specialising in cardiac intervention devices, heart failure and valvular diseases alongside cardiac risk factors, atrial fibrillation and shortness of breath. I practice at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, as well as Cromwell Hospital, RB & HH Specialist Care at Royal Brompton Hospital and The Lister Hospital, Chelsea. 

I have significant leadership experience as a practitioner, having been the clinical lead for cardiology and the clinical director for medical specialities at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. I am also the clinical lead for syncope here, and have set up a comprehensive device service where I introduced day-case pacemaker and ICD implantation and established the hospital’s pacemaker follow-up service.  

I graduated with an MBBS from the University of London in 1992, and completed my undergraduate training at King’s College Hospital and general training in Manchester. My speciality training in cardiology was undertaken at world-renowned cardiac centres; the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals. After completing research into the epidemiology and management of acute coronary syndromes at the Royal Brompton Hospital and the University of London, I received an MD in 2000.
