Stop Fainting is produced by a committed, experienced and passionate, core group of clinicians that consists of a Consultant Cardiologist and Electro physiologist, senior Registrars and Clinical Nurse Specialists that provide the Syncope and Tilt Test service at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London (the UK’s first Academic Health Science Centre).
In addition to treating a large volume of new patients every year, our academic and research commitments in the world of fainting has enabled us to collaborate and meet with many eminent and respected doctors, scientists, Psychologists and Physiotherapists working in this area. A number of these, world renowned, colleagues have also contributed to what you read and watch on this site.
What Our Patients Say.
I definitely have a much better understanding of what triggers my faints now I’ve been able to explore them in a safe environment and will be much better able to manage them in future.
Just by doing your job well with the tilt test appointment and being nice and not making me feel a bit of a hypochondriac, you have made more difference than you could imagine. I had pretty much turned my back on being a doc, because I just saw more bad practice in a few years than I imagined existed. Somehow you showed me that doing it right is still possible, I just got unlucky till now.
Your service is incredible and has been extremely helpful (after months / years of uncertainty). Your knowledge and experience was very apparent.
It was such a comfort to have you looking after me yesterday – thank you so much for your kindness. The test was quite an experience and helped me to understand what is going on inside my body.
Syncope can be such a challenging (and misunderstood) condition and I was struggling so much that it had taken over my life. Trish gently talked me through the tilt test, which gave a clear diagnosis. They are a fantastic team and I have a much better quality of life for having seen them as a patient!
The care I have received from the syncope service has been fantastic. All the staff I have come into contact with have been incredibly helpful, friendly and caring. What has impressed me most is how they have taken the time to explain everything clearly to me.
