Interventional Cardiologist with special interest in coronary artery disease, heart rhythm disorders and heart failure.
Consultant Cardiologist Dr McIntosh completed his medical degree in Scotland in 2003 and undertook the majority of his cardiology sub-specialty training in London, UK. During this period he trained in internationally recognised centres of excellence including St George's, Imperial College and The Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Trust.
Dr McIntosh went on to complete specialist clinical training fellowships in Wellington, NZ (Cardiac Electrophysiology and Complex Cardiac Device Implantation) and in Waikato, NZ (Coronary Artery Intervention and Structural Heart Disease). In 2018 he completed a postgraduate doctorate (MD res) at St George's University of London. This focused on the management of heart failure and the use of implanted cardiac devices. He spent 6 years as a consultant at the Royal Derby Hospital where he led the Cardiac Devices and Heart Failure Service. He also acted for the Heart Attack and Interventional Cardiology Service in Staffordshire and Derbyshire, treating both emergencies and stable patients with coronary artery disease. In 2021 Dr McIntosh emigrated to New Zealand with his family of 5 to take up a public post at Tauranga Hospital in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand.
Dr McIntosh specialises in all aspects of general cardiology. He holds special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease by angioplasty (stenting) and in the management of heart rhythm disorders and heart failure using devices such as pacemakers, cardiac resynchronisation therapy and defibrillators. He has pursued a number of research interests in these fields and was previously recognised as national ‘Scientific investigator of the Year,’ by the British Society of Echocardiography.
