About

Dr Scott Murray is an experienced Consultant Cardiologist based in Liverpool, UK. Following his graduation from Glasgow University with a First Class Honours BSc in Sports and Exercise Medicine (1999), his initial research work was presented at the American Heart Association and involved BNP and ACE genotype work in Athletic LVH and Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. Upon completion of his medical degree in 2001 he relocated to Liverpool and begun training in General Medicine and Cardiology, specialising in Interventional Cardiology, in particular intravascular imaging (IVUS) in stable and unstable coronary artery disease. During this time he undertook periods of research at The Thoraxcentre in Rotterdam and in Virginia, USA focusing on using intravascular ultrasound and Cardiac CT to diagnose 'vulnerable plaques' in patients. His research led to numerous publications, awards and also the post-graduate MD degree from The University of Liverpool.

Scott now has a specialist interest in Preventative Cardiology after spending 10 years + focused on the vulnerable coronary plaque.  He now prefers to solely deal with the "vulnerable patient" and believes in attenuating individual risks. He has given a recent keynote lecture at the Royal College of General Practitioners in London available to view here:

Scott works at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital in General Cardiology and is highly proficient in all aspects of this. He has several leadership roles locally in the sustainability and transformation plans (Demand and Prevention Lead) and he is the current President of the British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (BACPR). www.bacpr.com

Scott prides himself on his "down to earth" rapport with patients, his ability to explain complex concepts in basic language and he tries hard to treat every patient like family. He is married (to another Doctor!) with three young boys and lives in West Kirby, Wirral. He doesn't get to golf as much as he would like these days!

Dr Scott Murray has looked after both my mother and myself. We both can't thank him enough. His manner is both professional and personal at the same time - he puts you very much at ease and gives you the utmost confidence in his care. I would recommend Dr Scott to anyone who needs cardiac care.

Dr Scott went absolutely above and beyond what would have been expected from a good doctor to make sure I was kept informed, made to feel comfortable and received the best and speediest treatment possible. He personally arranged for me to be transferred to the most appropriate (and highly sought after) surgeon for my condition. Dr Scott is a true expert technically but is highly personable and an excellent communicator. Highly recommended.

Very good care by Dr. Murray, explained to me in detail what was going on in my heart, I was a bit disappointment that i have yo wait 6 weeks until further action can be taken but he has assured me that this is the right decision for my recovery and I have put my trust in him. Thank you.
