Dr Paramjit Jeetley is consultant cardiologist with a special interest in cardiac imaging and heart failure. He also has expertise in managing cardiac disease in patients with advanced renal disease. He is based at the Royal Free Hospital where he has been a consultant since 2011.
He qualified MBChB from the University of Bristol in 1995, after which he worked across the South West of England before embarking on a dedicated period of research at Northwick Park Hospital. There he developed his clinical skills in stress and contrast perfusion echocardiography. He has presented his work at national and international meetings and has published original research in a number of peer reviewed journals. After gaining his MD, he returned to the South West of England where he completed his specialist training in cardiology with sub-speciality interests in echocardiography and heart failure.
He was appointed as a consultant cardiologist at the Royal Free in 2011. He has held a number of leadership roles in the department and was Clinical Director for Royal Free Cardiology between 2016 and 2021. He is the current lead for the cardiac CT service.
