Dr Piyush Jain is a consultant cardiologist currently working at the private practices at Spire Bushey and Harpenden, HCA Wellington and Elstree Waterfront centre as well as OSD healthcare in Hemel hempstead. His NHS base is West Hertfordshire Hospitals. He has been a consultant cardiologist at West Hertfordshire NHS Trust since 2017 and is currently the departmental lead for echocardiography as well as the lead for clinical governance.

Dr Jain attained his first medical qualification in 2000. He completed his medical training in North London, at hospitals including Royal Brompton and Harefield Trusts as well the Barnet and Chase Farm hospitals, obtaining MRCP in 2010.

He now trains registars in these specialist techniques and teaches on advanced CT courses.

In 2015 he completed an MD (Research) at Imperial College London. His work was supported by the prestigious Dorothy Hodgkin Post Graduate award. The research was to evaluate ethnic differences in markers of subclinical atherosclerosis using cardiac imaging (coronary calcium, echocardiography and myocardial perfusion), as well as inflammation (C-reactive protein). The aim of the study was to assess the potential of such markers in early identification of subjects at risk of coronary events. He has presented his research at local and international conferences as well as published in high impact peer reviewed journals.

Dr Jain has many professional memberships including Royal College of Physicians, British Cardiovascular Society, European Society of Cardiology, British Society of Echocardiography, European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging, Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography and British Heart Valve Society.

He enjoys interaction with patients and spend as much time with them as needed to get to a clear diagnosis and clarification of all the findings and diagnosis to the patient. He ensures that they understand their disease, prognosis and future plans as well as rational for ongoing treatment. This allows for individualized medicine as far as possible, as well as shared decision making.

Dr Azad Ghuran is a consultant cardiologist. He works for East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust (Lister Hospital, Stevenage and Queen Elizabeth II Hospital, Welwyn Garden City).

He qualified from the University of Edinburgh in 1993 and completed his post graduate higher specialist training in general medicine and cardiology in hospitals around London including St George's Hospital London, King's College Hospital London, and the Sussex Cardiac Centre in Brighton. He secured a one-year interventional fellowship to work at the Onze Lieve Vrouwe Gasthuis (OLVG) hospital in Amsterdam where radial angioplasty was first performed (in 1992) and pioneered. Radial coronary intervention is technically more challenging but more rewarding as there is improved patient comfort, a significant reduction in bleeding complications, allows early mobilisation (some patients can actually walk out of the operating theatre after the procedure) and facilitates day case procedures.

Throughout his training, Dr Ghuran has worked with eminent European and world leaders in cardiology. He is trained in performing multi-vessel and complex coronary artery intervention (angioplasty/stents) using both the radial and femoral approach, although he prefers the former. He has a diverse clinical background and is experienced in most aspects of general cardiology. This is reflected by his range of interests that also include coronary microvascular disease and coronary artery spasm, pacemakers, valvular heart disease, syncope (collapsing with loss of consciousness), hypertension, heart failure, and arrhythmia (palpitations) management.

Dr Ghuran adopts a multidisciplinary approach in managing his patients, often liaising with other sub-specialists in cardiology, physicians, surgeons, dieticians and physiotherapists. This approach is advantageous as it provides the best possible care for his patients. He has published many articles in the field of cardiology including one book: 'Emergency Cardiology', five book chapters and many peer-reviewed articles. He has also reviewed articles for several foremost cardiology journals and has presented at conferences nationally and internationally in the field of cardiology. Dr Ghuran takes an active role in medical education, training general practitioners, junior doctors, nurses, technicians, paramedics and medical students.
