Dr Dominic Cox Consultant Cardiologist
I am a general and invasive cardiologist who specialises in angina and chest pain management with its investigations, as well as the broad range of investigations for palpitations, blood pressure,heart failure, breathlessness, heart rhythm disturbance and blackouts.
I have specialist interest in coronary intervention with angiography, angioplasty and stenting, as well as being the lone cardiologist provider of cardiac CT in Northampton. I implant pacemakers for slow heart rhythms (bradycardia pacing) as well as devices for the identification of heart rhythm problems.
I also understand the psychological impact of cardiac concern and helping people manage symptoms through proper investigation and perception of their condition.
I mainly provide NHS services at Northampton General Hospital, with some out of hours emergency cover for county-wide urgent heart attack care at Kettering.
In my personal life I am a proud father of two teenagers (and subsequent taxi service). I help support the coaching of my son's rugby team. I am a keen cyclist where keeness does not relate to great ability but I find the effort and motion good for my physical health and the perfect antedote to being a busy cardiologist.
Occasionally the privilege of being involved in cardiology can allow amazing things to happen
