Medical Advisor

Medical Adviser Dr Jeremy Butts

Originally from Lancashire, Jeremy studied at Merchant Taylors School in Crosby, before attending Charring Cross and Westminster Medical School, where he undertook his pre-clinical studies. He successfully completed his medical degree, graduating from Imperial College in 2000. Following this Jeremy gained broad experience of general medicine, rotating through a wide range of posts around London, including the competitive St Georges Teaching Hospital rotation. Areas of experience included accident and emergency, diabetes, endocrinology, cardiology, stroke medicine, care of the elderly, renal medicine, rheumatology and intensive care.

In 2004, Jeremy completed professional exams gaining his MRCP diploma from the Royal College of Physicians, before undertaking a period of research at Hammersmith Hospital. There he was heavily involved in running a multicentre clinical study, comparing the effectiveness of bypass surgery when compared with stenting in patients with diabetes. He contributed to a variety of other projects around the delivery of emergency angioplasty, publishing a number of journal articles and presenting at both national and international meetings.

Jeremy has gained extensive cardiology experience in both district general and large teaching hospitals. These have included The Royal Brompton, Hammersmith, Wythenshawe and St Georges Hospital where he became a Senior Interventional Fellow prior to completing specialist training. Whilst at St Georges he pursued his sub-specialist interest of coronary intervention, developing expertise in a wide range of advanced techniques.

Whilst undertaking his clinical fellowship Jeremy completed an LLM in Medical Law, submitting his dissertation on the ethics and law of consent for cardiac procedures. He has a strong interest in patient autonomy and the right of the individual to influence their management strategy, with active help from their doctor. Through the study of medical ethics, Jeremy has developed a high level of objectivity and approaches problems from different perspectives, not simply that of his own.

Currently Jeremy works as a consultant cardiologist at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust and at Leeds General Infirmary where he provides regional cover for emergency angioplasty. He has completed an MBA degree with an interest in Marketing, understanding that efficiently run services provide high levels of quality and safety for patients. In addition to contributing heavily to the angioplasty service at Calderdale and Huddersfield, he is currently the lead for clinical governance and involved in the teaching and supervision of doctors in training.

He has a wide range of interests within cardiology, including the prevention of heart disease and management of common risk factors such as high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol. Common symptoms requiring investigation and management include chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, dizziness and collapse. A broad experience of both general medicine and cardiology, places him in a strong position to manage patients who present with a range of conditions. As a high volume interventional cardiologist Jeremy enjoys challenging angioplasty and is regularly invited to be a faculty member at conferences, delivering talks at both regional and national meetings.
