About Derick

I am married with 3 children who are now grown-up. When time allows I am a keen sportsman enjoying squash, tennis and golf. This keeps me fit enough to keep up with the kids skiing too.

I am often invited to talk on heart rhythm problems at local and national meetings and I consistently get excellent feedback. I am able to help patients understand their heart condition so that we can choose the right path forward together.  


  • I have over 80 peer reviewed publications (mainly in the field of Atrial Fibrillation)
