    About

    Dr Malik has over 25 years worth of experience. 

    He is a Consultant Cardiologist working in London. He was appointed Consultant Cardiologist at St Mary’s Hospital and Honorary Senior Lecturer at Imperial College in 2003. Following the merger of St Mary’s, Hammersmith and Charing Cross Hospitals with Imperial College, he began to practice at all these hospitals. Dr Malik also sees patients privately.

    In 2010 he was appointed lead for the Heart Attack Treatment program, and in 2011, he became Director of the Cardiac Catheter Laboratories at Hammersmith Hospital. Dr Malik leads the large Heart Attack Centre (HAC) program at Hammersmith Hospital, delivering world class treatment to patients in West London.

    He is also Director of Structural Heart Disease at Hammersmith Hospital and regularly performs "live-cases" teaching doctors around the world. 

    It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.

    Dr Malik gave clear explanations about the options of treatment but in a very kind way which made it easy to make the right choices in a difficult scenario. The procedure he performed was successful and his after-care every bit as reassuring.

    Words cannot adequately express the esteem in which I hold Dr Malik. I have undergone three procedures (four stents and a TAVI) carried out by Dr Malik and, on each occasion, Dr Malik carried out the procedure with such skill and precision that recovery was minimal. He very kindly took the time to explain in detail each procedure and was so very kind and reassuring that it immediately instilled my total confidence in him. I cannot emphasise enough how seamless my care was both before, during and after each procedure. On each occasion it was such a positive experience. Dr Malik ensured that no stone was left unturned by thorough investigations prior to the actual procedures. I will be forever indebted to Dr Malik who, without doubt, extended my life span and gave me back my quality of life.
