Dr Richard Cooke, Consultant Cardiologist

Personal treatment philosophy:

"The first tenet of medicine is to do no harm, and it is my belief that all interventions should be performed in line with best clinical practice standards and current medical evidence. It is also clear that there has been a welcome recent paradigm shift to prevention which has often been neglected in the past and I am strongly in favour of this. "
