About Dr Claridge

SC2 bw.jpg

Dr Claridge is a Consultant Cardiologist at Salisbury District Hospital specialising in the management of atrial fibrillation (AF) and other disturbances of heart rhythm.

AF is the most common rhythm disturbance in the UK and is often characterised by palpitations, breathlessness on exertion and generalised fatigue.

His area of specific expertise is catheter ablation of AF to stop these symptoms. He also performs ablation procedures targeting all other rhythm problems.

He implants simple pacemakers for patients with slow heart beats and when necessary more complex pacemakers for patients with heart failure.

Dr Claridge has a PhD in which his thesis focused on the use of MRI to risk stratify patients with heart failure at risk of sudden death and the use of defibrillators to reduce this risk. I have authored over 60 peer-reviewed publications.

Dr Claridge holds an honorary position of Consultant Cardiologist at University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust and treats his NHS patients requiring complex ablations at the Royal Bournemouth hospital. 

He lives in Salisbury with his wife and four children.
