Dr Matt Wright


Consultant cardiologist and electrophysiologist

Specialises in electrophysiology and the management of arrhythmias.

Dr Matt Wright is an experienced consultant cardiologist and electrophysiologist.

He specialises in the management of all arrhythmias, but in particular atrial fibrillation (AF) and atrial tachycardias (AT). Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia and can lead to strokes. Dr Wright treats patients with any disturbance of heart rhythm, typical symptoms of arrhythmia can include palpitations, but patients often feel as if the heart is beating very rapidly, or in some cases stopping. Other symptoms which may be due to heart rhythm problems include tiredness, pain in the throat, shortness of breath and collapses or faints.
