Dr Chris Wilkinson


I am an NIHR clinical lecturer in cardiology at Newcastle University and a cardiology registrar. I completed my MD with the cardiovascular epidemiology group in Leeds, where I used a large dataset of primary care records to investigate whether frailty modifies the association between atrial fibrillation and clinical outcomes. I continue to work closely with the team at Leeds, where I am an honorary research fellow.
