About

Dr. Nijjer is an award winning Cardiologist who has an international reputation in coronary physiology.  He works a Consultant Cardiologist at both the Hammersmith Hospital and Chelsea & Westminster Foundation NHS Trust. He is a Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Imperial College London. He undertakes his private practice at 66 Harley Street, BMI Syon Clinic, the BUPA Cromwell Hospital and the Wellington Hospital.  He also see patients at the private facilities at the Hammersmith Hospital and Chelsea & Westminster Hospital.


Dr Nijjer performs coronary intervention at the catheter suites of both the Hammersmith Hospital and Chelsea & Westminster NHS Foundation Trust. He is part of the Primary Angioplasty on-call service at the Hammersmith Hospital which provides 24/7 care for patients suffering from a heart attack. He is an internationally recognised expert in invasive coronary physiology, an advanced technique which can help guide Cardiologists on when and where a coronary stent is needed. He has performed ground-breaking research into invasive technologies that have changed the field and lead to better treatment of patients around the world.  He is regularly invited as a speaker and faculty at international conferences including the American College of Cardiology and TCT.


Dr. Nijjer studied medicine at the University of Bristol, where he graduated with Honours in 2004 with two undergraduate scholarships and many academic prizes. He was also awarded a First Class Honours degree with prizes in Pharmacology which was supported by the prestigious Wolfson Award from the Royal College of Physicians.  He undertook his Cardiology training at the Hammersmith Hospital and Royal Brompton Hospital.  In his role as Consultant, Dr Nijjer has strived to deliver the best patient care while working across multiple hospital sites in west London.


Dr. Nijjer is committed to the better treatment of patients through the development and application of new medical technologies.  His PhD, funded by the Medical Research Council and awarded by Imperial College, involved the development of new techniques (iFR and iFR-pullback) to measure blood flow in coronary arteries with blockages. Dr Nijjer pioneered the use of iFR-pullback to better use coronary stents in patients with many blockages and the iFR technology has now been used in thousands of patients around the world. A recent editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine referred to it as 'the new gold standard'.


Dr. Nijjer possesses clinical expertise in all aspects of cardiology, including treating patients with chest pain, angina, breathlessness on exertion, palpitations or collapse. He has expertise in assessing and treating patients at increased risk of heart disease such as patients with high blood pressure, diabetes or raised cholesterol. He uses all of the latest stress testing techniques and if needed, invasive angiography, coronary stenting, and can implant pacemakers or cardiac monitoring devices when it is needed.


Dr. Nijjer's holistic approach to treatment is one of understanding as he recognises and responds to the fact that an individual's medical issues exist alongside other aspects of their lives, treating any medical conditions in a way that fits the lifestyle of his patients. He utilises the latest guideline-supported cardiac test to ensure his patients are fully investigated in addition to his thorough clinical assessment.

From my first consultation with Dr Nijjer through to the Cardiac Operation he was candid , considerate and consummately professional. The treatment I needed was completely unexpected. I expected my checks to be routine. Due to Dr Nijjer’s management I was reassured that the outcome would be very positive rather than disturbed by the results of my checks. My family and I owe a great deal to Dr Nijjer and his team.

I was referred to Dr Nijjer following a routine health check up. His CV is exemplary and it was therefore no surprise that my condition was diagnosed and treated quickly, efficiently and professionally. However, what really sets Sukh apart is his level of patient care and support. Being diagnosed with any heart condition can be a somewhat overwhelming experience to begin with and his very personable and approachable manner made a huge difference from the outset. I would happily recommend him to anyone.

Before I saw Dr Nijjer for the first time, I was worried by the uncertainty of what might be wrong with my heart. He immediately set about organising the tests that were needed to ascertain my condition. That is symptomatic of his thoroughness. He has been very clear in explaining things including the alternatives and their respective risks. He tries to deal with things without resorting to invasive procedures unless necessary. My care from him has been excellent.

I came to Dr. Nigel after experiencing painful palpitations and after being seen by another cardiologist as well as emergency department. Until I met him, previous doctors were unable to identify my aritmia. I would highly recommend him as an expert and truly knowledgeable in his field!

My mother had a consultation with Dr Nijjer recently at the BMI Syons Clinic, and I accompanied her. Dr Nijjer was incredibly attentive, professional and caring. Understood the exact symptoms and complications, and made excellent recommendations and gave my mother choices to help with her decision. He is to the point and pro-active, I can't recommend him high enough . We got an appointment with the clinic, and were so lucky that he was the available consultant on that day we needed to see someone.

Dr Sukhjinder Nijjer

Glad to support you in making decisions about your health. I hope she is feeling better soon! Thank you for your kind words

Dr. Nijjer supported me in an extremely professional and proactive manner – During my initial visit, he quickly discovered a serious issue at stake, reacting immediately by having me booked into crucial investigations and ultimately surgery. He helped me understanding the findings of each investigation, translating those into viable options whilst guiding me into the best path to get my issue addressed. His surgery intervention was extremely professional and reassuring. Today my health situation has massively improved thanks to his help & Dr. Nijjer continuous to provide guidance making sure we continue taking the right actions.

My elderly father was referred to Dr. Nijjer to determine if his heart was strong enough for an urgently required and imminent hip operation. The hip operation was at risk of being postponed for a second if the anaesthetist did not receive confirmation that my father's heart was functioning normally, the results of previous electrocardiograms and a echocardiogram had been inconclusive. Dr. Nijjer provided clear explanation of the results of the electrocardiograms and echocardiogram that had already been performed as well as the reason why further investigation was required. He also showed empathy for his patient and helped to expedite the follow up investigation (MRI) in the hope that the operation would not have to be postponed. Dr. Nijjer explained the results of the MRI scan and provided clarification where requested responding to my query on the same day (which was not expected). Overall, Dr. Nijjer provided a high level of patient care and was extremely personable during his interactions with my father which gave me great reassurance. I would recommend him to others in need of the services of a cardiologist.

Dr Sukhjinder Nijjer

Thank you for your kind words. I am glad I could help! Wishing your father a speedy recovery.

I cannot thank Dr Sukhjinder Nijjer enough for his professional skill in his diagnosis that a stent was neccessary to be fitted within my heart, keeping me informed at every stage before, during and after my operation. Both myself, my wife and family are indebted to him and the Theatre Staff in enabling me to enjoy a healther and hopefully longer life in the coming years.

After a scan showed plaque in my arteries i asked the consultant at west middlesex hospital for recommendations as to see who i could see privately for further investigations. I practice complimentary medicine and very much wanted to find someone who i trusted clinically and very importantly would take time to get to know me as an individual and give me guidance so that i could make informed decisions about my my health. Dr Nijjer was amazing. He has always made time to answer my many questions promptly by phone or email. His remarkable skill and kindness made an angiogram as painless as possible (both physically and emotionally).

In March I had a heart problem and I used the Services of Dr Sukhjinder Nijjer. He was recommended to me by BUPA advisor and I got angioplasty done by him and 3 stents were inserted. Dr. Nijjer was talking to me and reassured me and tried his best to keep me calm throughout the procedure. He was very patient and explained everything to my family members and reassured them. Even after the procedure he is still very helpful. It took me a while to get used to the medicines and he has always replied to my emails and helped me a lot. I have got high regards for him and would recommend him to anyone who needs a cardiologist.

It was a lucky day when Dr Sukhjinder Nijjer was recommended to me to carry out an angiogram, which, for a professional is a routine procedure, but for the patient a daunting prospect. My fears were allayed from the moment I met Dr Nijjer who has a presence and a quiet assurance which instils confidence. Dr Nijjer leads a highly professional and competent team all of whom clearly respect his ability and professional approach to his work. Throughout the procedure he acted with a calm authority which took away any stress that I might have been feeling. Following recovery I received a detailed and highly supportive explanation of what had been found and a reassuring prognosis.He is clearly a gifted individual and wise beyond his years. My very grateful thanks to Dr Nijjer and his excellent team

Very cogent explanations for both my wife and I of what is happening with my cardiovascular health. Good follow up with meetings and appointments day or night. Effectively we are now in a diagnostic process trying to pinpoint source of ongoing angina issues. Has recommended other specialists as needed.

I met Dr Nijjer during my pregnancy when NHS was taking ages to get any tests done for my condition. He was accurate and compassionate in understanding the emotional component I was dealing with and made me feel more at ease making sure he arranged for my diagnostic tests and follow up appointments. I was completely blown away by how helpful and kind he was and how fast he was at getting back to me inspite of being away from the country while I had my diagnostic tests. I am so grateful for the excellent care and concern I received from Dr. Nijjer when I needed it the most.

Dr Sukhjinder took time prior to the investigation to explain what might be discovered and the possible implications. During the procedure he kept me informed of what he was seeing and what options were available and what he proposed to do. Post operation he visited me twice, first to check on me and the second time to handover his report. He also made a sketch of my arteries pre and post procedure. I found him to be both professional and reassuring. If I should ever need another operation I would hope that he would be the surgeon.

I recently visited Doctor Nijjer regarding a development of pains in my chest which my GP had decided was probably Arrhythmia. From the outset Dr Nijjer had a totally professional and thorough approach, which examined my total health history and current/expected levels of work and sport activity. Initial non intrusive tests and treatment plan were immediately prescribed based on my own personal profile and was exactly what I needed. A highly qualified professional with a good manner and in depth approach, all managed in an effective and efficient way.
