Our Cardiology Service provides outpatient services for children of all ages in Sheffield with heart problems.

The Cardiology Service is clinically led by Dr Rupa Talekar, Dr Pallavi Agadoorappa and Dr Josephine Murphy – Consultant Paediatricians with Expertise in Cardiology, and are joined by an outreach Consultant Interventional Cardiologist from Leeds, Dr Daniel Velasco-Sanchez. The service is also aided by a Cardiology Clinical Nurse Specialist, Sally Roberts, as well two Cardiac Sonographers, Robina Batingan and Rubie Mucha.

Dr Rupa Talekar, Dr Pallavi Agadoorappa and Dr Josephine Murphy each run weekly clinics at the main site, Sheffield Children’s Hospital, where they see and manage cardiac cases.

Dr Velasco-Sanchez runs a bi-monthly clinic at Sheffield Children’s Hospital where he sees patients with more complex cardiac cases. This clinic is a joint multidisciplinary outreach clinic supported by the PECs, the Cardiac Sonographers, and the Cardiology Clinical Nurse Specialist.

All these clinics offer primary cardiac investigations like echocardiograms (ultrasound of the heart) and electrocardiograms or ‘ECGs’ (monitor that traces the heart’s rhythm, rate and electricity), which are essential in identifying cardiac problems and leading to diagnosis.

The tertiary Cardiology service is based at Leeds General Infirmary, which offers nursing care and surgical or interventional care for cardiac patients.
