Dr Corbett qualified from St John’s College, Cambridge in 1997 with a distinction in Medicine and a first class honours degree in Pathology. He subsequently trained in General (Internal) Medicine and Cardiology in Edinburgh, London and Milan.
His principal subspecialty interest is in interventional cardiology and he was privileged to spend a one year long fellowship with the internationally renowned pioneer and practitioner of coronary stenting, Dr Antonio Colombo at San Raffaele and Columbus Hospitals in Milan, Italy from 2005-6.
Prior to his appointment as a Consultant Cardiologist with an interest in Coronary Intervention at Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust in June 2008, he was a Locum Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at the Hammersmith Hospital in London.
Outside of medicine, he is a keen musician and met his violinist wife while playing the flute in the Cambridge University Chamber Orchestra. He wishes he had more time to prevent on-going deterioration in the standard of his piano playing.
He has recently joined the choir of Romsey Abbey as a 2nd tenor alongside both of his sons who are choristers.
