Dr Harry Boardman


Consultant Cardiologist
Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Special Interests:
Heart Failure
General Cardiology


I completed my undergraduate training at Imperial College London and after junior doctor rotation in and around London. My cardiology specialty training started in London and finished in Oxford. I was awarded a Cochrane fellowship at the UK Cochrane centre and undertook a DPhil at the University of Oxford. I have published a number of articles in leading international journals and contributed to cardiovascular text books and a European position statement on exercise and hypertension. My research interests focused around the impact of female specific cardiovascular risk factors, such as HRT and pregnancy complications and future heart disease. I now work predominantly at Milton Keynes University Hospital but also one day a week at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
