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’ under the supervision of Prof. Simon Redwood who is the current president of the British Coronary Intervention Society (BCIS).
He specialises in complex percutaeous coronary interventions (PCI), primary angioplasty for acute heart attacks, intravascular imaging and coronary physiology and has an ongoing interest in cardiovascular research being the principle site investigator for several large, multinational studies.
He is the clinical lead for the cardiac catheterisation labs at the Royal Free and in developing local guidelines. 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
Dr. Lockie believes in a multidisciplinary and holistic approach to the treatment of patients with cardiac problems involving the latest and most sophisticated investigations and techniques, but also careful clinical assessment, always placing the patient’s needs and concerns at the centre of any management plan.
