 Dr Afzal Sohaib is a leading Consultant Cardiologist with a special interest in the management of heart rhythm disorders, such as atrial fibrillation (AF), and causes of palpitations, shortness of breath, and blackouts. He implants pacemakers and defibrillators and performs ablation procedures for heart rhythm disorders.

His NHS practice is at the Bart’s Heart Centre at St Bartholomew's Hospital in London, one of Europe’s largest specialist heart centres, and he is Clincal Lead for the heart rhythm service at Barking, Havering & Redbridge Unversity Hospitals, one of London's busiest Trusts. He is also an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at Bart's and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry.

He was awarded a prestigious Clinical Research Training Fellowship funded by the British Heart Foundation which funded his PhD at Imperial College London. Dr Sohaib’s PhD investigated how pacemakers improve symptoms in heart failure. He has published numerous articles in international peer reviewed scientific journals and regularly speaks at national and international cardiology meetings. He is author of the book "Decoding Cardiac Electrophysiology".

He enjoys teaching and training young aspiring cardiologists. He was President of the British Junior Cardiologists’ Association (BJCA) and was on the Council of the British Cardiovascular Society. You can learn more about his practice on www.drafzalsohaib.co.uk.

It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.
