Dr Fynn was appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist at Papworth Hospital, Cambridge in 2004. His specialty interest is in the management of heart rhythm disorders, performing over 200 catheter ablations for cardiac arrhythmias each year. His clinical work also involves the implantation of cardiac devices, including pacemakers and implantable cardiac defibrillators. He is very proud of his clinical results and the feedback he receives both from patients and colleagues. In 2013 Dr Fynn was awarded a National Clinical Excellence Award for his work.

Between 2006 and 2012 Dr Fynn was the Clinical Lead for the Cardiac Rhythm Management service at Papworth, which is one of the largest such services in the UK. In January 2012 he became the Clinical Director for the Cardiology Department at the hospital. This is a challenging role the hospital plans to relocate to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus in 2018.

Although he continues to enjoy balancing this role with his teaching and research commitments, providing excellence in the clinical care of his patients remains his priority.    

Other interests

Dr Fynn has a particular interest in the management of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), which is the most common heart rhythm disturbance. In 2004 he was awarded an MD thesis from the University of Cambridge for his research into this arrhythmia. He continues to publish scientific papers in this area and offers the most up-to-date treatment of this condition to his patients.

Personal interests

Dr Fynn's job keeps him very busy, taking up much of his time. When not working, he tries to devote his time to his wife and 3 children. His children are all very busy with various activities, mainly sporting, and his usual role is to provide the transport! As a family they enjoy walking, swimming, golf  and skiing.
