Dr Ioannis Vasiliadis joined Hereford County Hospital and Worcester Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust as a consultant interventional cardiologist in August 2018.

He has trained in interventional cardiology at Onassis Cardiac Surgery in Athens Greece  and Royal Free Hospital in London-UK. His scope or practice includes all aspects of general cardiology including cardiovascular prevention, diagnosis and treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure), hyperlipidaemia (raised cholesterol), heart failure(heart muscle disease) including chemotherapy induced cardiomyopathy, valvular heart disease, perioperative risk assessment, cardiovascular risk assessment  and arrhythmia(disturbances of heart rhythm). He subspecialises in interventional cardiology including coronary angiography, coronary angioplasty/stent insertion, right heart catheterisation and intravascular physiology and imaging. He also regularly consults patients presenting with symptoms of chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, heart murmurs, dizzy spells and blackouts.   He has conducted formal research in the area of Heart Failure and completed his PhD thesis on Gene polymorphism in Heart Failure. He is Fellow of European Society of Cardiology (FESC)
