    In 2002, he was appointed as consultant cardiologist at Royal Brompton Hospital. From 2005 until 2014, he led the arrhythmia service at Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals. During that time, the arrhythmia service  developed into the largest service of its type in the UK.

    Dr Vias Markides specialises in the management of all arrhythmias, but especially the ablation of complex arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia.

    He is also experienced in the implantation of pacemakers, ICDs and devices for cardiac resynchronization.

    Dr Markides has been a writing member for the National Service Framework for CHD (Chapter 8: Arrhythmias). For a number of years was the clinical lead for arrhythmias/devices for the Northwest London Cardiovascular and Stroke Network, before taking overall leadership for cardiovascular services for the same network.
