I am one of the Consultant Cardiologists in Oxford based at the John Radcliffe Hospital and Nuffield Health The Manor Hospital. I am experienced in all aspects of cardiology and my subspecialty expertise is in heart rhythm disturbances. As such I see many patients with palpitations and common heart rhythm disturbances such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter and supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). I also perform procedures to treat patients with heart rhythm disturbances. These include catheter ablation procedures and implantation of cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators.
Finding the right cardiologist for your treatment is a very personal decision. My main aim is to put you at ease, find out what is causing your symptoms and give you the information you need on your condition and the treatment options so that you can decide what you want the next step to be. Sometimes reassurance on the basis of appropriate tests is all that is needed.Dr Ginks publications
Dr Ginks was appointed Consultant Cardiologist at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust in March 2013.
He gained an MD in new therapeutic approaches to Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy and won a clinical research fellow award at the Heart Rhythm Society meeting in the US in 2009.
He was awarded first class honours in a Bachelor of Science degree in pharmacology and graduated with honours in Medicine from Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in 2000. He trained in cardiology at The London Chest Hospital, St Thomas’ Hospital and St Bartholomew’s Hospital and was started work as a Consultant Cardiologist in Oxford in early 2013.
We are delighted to be able to recommend Dr Ginks who has been truly exceptional in his treatment of our son, whose life has been transformed under his care.
I just wanted to record my thanks to you for taking an interest in my heart problem and thus saving my life. I have been so impressed by the efficiency of all concerned at the Cardiothoracic department and the care and kindness I have received has been outstanding. We hear so much about the NHS’s failings but in my experience the organization at Oxford has been superb and I have great pleasure in telling everyone about it!
The meetings with you gave me the fullest confidence that the objectives and right option had been weighed faithfully and it was needless for me to worry.
I genuinely can't say enough about Dr. Ginks. Having been diagnosed with a genetic heart condition, I went through countless numbers of doctors, both public and private, across the UK, Ireland, and the US. But it wasn't until I came across Dr. Ginks that I had a true benchmark to measure every other doctor against. The level of service, care, and information I received was absolutely incomparable. If there was a doctor like Dr. Ginks out there for everyone, we would all feel much more comfortable with our outlook and the care that we, and our loved ones, are getting. He's an absolute credit to his profession.
