Emeritus Professor of Clinical Cardiology, Queen Mary University London


Adam Timmis is Emeritus Professor of Clinical Cardiology at Queen Mary University London, former Consultant Cardiologist at Barts Heart Centre and a recipient of the British Cardiovascular Society’s Mackenzie Medal for outstanding service to UK cardiology. He graduated from Cambridge University and trained in cardiology at Massachusetts General and Guys Hospitals before moving to the Barts Heart Centre in London. He was former Editor of Heart and chaired NICE guideline groups on investigation of stable chest pain and management of angina. His cardiovascular outcomes research was originally based on local data collections in east London before it moved on to the UK’s cardiovascular registries which, through linkage with primary care records, have provided a national perspective on the patient journey through a range of cardiovascular phenotypes. He is now founding Editor-in-Chief of European Heart Journal-Quality of Care and Clinical Outcomes (EHJ-QCCO) and chairs the European Heart Health Institute (EHHI) in Brussels.
