About

Dr. Lockie is Cardiologist based in London, UK.

He went to University College School in North London and trained in medicine at Edinburgh University. During this time he undertook an intercalated degree in psychology gaining First Class honours. Following graduation, he worked at the Old Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh before moving to London for his specialist cardiology training at St Thomas'. With an interest in ischaemic heart disease and re-perfusion he undertook a PhD at KCL, winning the Young Investigator Prize at SCMR in the United States. He specialized in advanced stenting and percutaeous coronary interventions (PCI) at the Academic Medical Centre in Amsterdam for a year and completed his PCI training back at St. Thomas’. In 2013 he was then appointed as a consultant interventional cardiologist at the Royal Free NHS Foundation Trust and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Cardiovascular Science at UCL.

Dr Lockie specialises in complex percutaeous coronary interventions (PCI) and stenting procedures for blocked coronary arteries including primary angioplasty for acute heart attacks, intravascular imaging and coronary physiology. He has an ongoing interest in cardiovascular research being the principle site investigator for several large, multinational studies.

He is the clinical lead for coronary revascularisation at the Royal Free and responsibilities include developing local regional guidelines and services. He also has responsibility in education and maintaining the institutional databases for heart attacks and PCI. He sits on the national advisory board for the British Cardiac Society, representing the North Central London region. 

He regularly teaches and lectures at conferences and seminars, including the international faculty of the European Society of Cardiology. He is also local principle investigator for several large, multi-centre clinical trials examining: novel stents; PCI in heart failure; PCI in cardiogenic shock; renal protection during coronary interventions; coronary flow and pressure measurements during PCI. In recognition of academic and clinical excellence Dr Lockie was recently elected a Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology (FESC).

Dr. Lockie believes in a multidisciplinary and holistic approach to the treatment of patients with cardiac problems. This involves utilising the latest and most sophisticated investigations and treatments, but also always listening to the patient and carefully discussing their clinical problems.  It is essential to ensure that the patient’s needs and concerns are at the centre of any management plan.

Outstanding advice and calm analysis. Always happy to have a frank discussion in plain English which helps really understand the nature of the issues and options available. He is clearly an expert but wears his knowledge lightly to give reassurance and clarity. Superb.

Following a most successful procedure under Dr Lockie, just over two weeks ago at the Royal Free, this was an important follow-up consultation to further discuss my ongoing medication. Dr Lockie's extremely professional support and care throughout has been exemplary and greatly appreciated.

From initial consultation through to treatment Dr Lockie was excellent - he was remarkably caring and took the time to explain everything in laymans terms. He also spent time getting to know me and to understand my life so that he could suggest the best treatment - I could not recommend him highly enough.

Dr Lockie is an excellent physician. He is very knowledgeable and highly skilled. He takes the time to explain - in simple, but by no means patronising, terms - the situation to the patient, as well as any alternatives/options. An important factor for us was that it felt that Dr Lockie sees (and treats) the person, not just the symptom. All in all myself and my family were very satisfied with the care he offered and would recommend him without hesitation.

Dr Lockie has been very concerned to establish why i had a tia, and why i also have brief periods of faintness. His approach is logical and sympathetic and I have great hopes of success. He has also coped with my limitless questions. Recommended.

I am in no position to "review" the work of this wonderful doctor, and it's peculiar to have been asked! That said, however, I'm delighted to say to anyone who'll listen that Dr Lockie has had a massively positive impact on my life. I have seen a great many doctors in recent years, alas, but Dr Tim is in the absolute top rank. He is enlightened, respectful, kind and very very perceptive. ~I cannot imagine being in better hands.

I don't really do on-line reviews but in Tim's case i'm going to make an exception. I went to see Tim with my Son who had been told that he needed to be referred immediately to a heart specialist. Tim went over and above in order to help and advise us on our Son's condition. He helped to speed up getting a Cardiac MRI scan done and was very quick and efficient in replying to emails that we sent him, when to be honest other specialists either wouldn't give you their email or would ask you to book an appointment. He really helped to calm the situation down and was very thorough, thoughtful, profession and efficient.

Dr Lockie has been a hugely skilled and reassuring support to my family over a number of years. He always makes himself available, whatever the time, and has a calm but authoritative manner which leaves a patient (or parent) feeling informed and empowered. A wonderful doctor.
