The clinic has been inspected by the Care Quality Commission several times and has passed each time with flying colours. In 2020, he co-founded the London Heart Practice, to provide excellence in cardiac care even in the time of coronavirus pandemic.

    Dr Ramrakha is also well established in the scientific research community, authoring various medical textbooks, such as the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine, Oxford Handbook of Acute Medicine, Oxford Handbook of Cardiology, as well as peer reviewed journals.
