Personal Profile

Matthew Luckie is a Consultant Cardiologist based at Manchester Royal Infirmary (MRI) within Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust as well as practicing at The Alexandra Hospital. He was appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist at MRI in 2015, having spent 2 years as a consultant at Lancashire Cardiac Centre, Blackpool. He graduated from University of Manchester Medical School in 1998 and gained entry to the North West Deanery cardiology training programme in 2002. He completed his cardiology training around the North West region, including an echocardiography fellowship and a period of postgraduate research in echocardiography and the use of pacemakers in heart failure at Manchester Royal Infirmary, leading to the award of an MD degree.

He sees a wide range of patients with cardiac disease in his practice as an NHS cardiology consultant, specialising in echocardiography, valvular and structural heart disease. He is accredited by the British Society of Echocardiography in transthoracic, transoesophageal and stress echocardiography and led the MRI echocardiography department to achieve departmental accreditation in 2019. He supervises a high-volume stress echocardiography service as well as a specialist heart valve surveillance clinic for monitoring of patients with heart valve problems in order to ensure timely referral for surgical or other intervention. He works closely with other colleagues able to offer surgical intervention for heart valve disease, as well as catheter-based (keyhole) options for treatment where appropriate.

He offers a one-stop cardiology clinic at the The Alexandra Hospital, Cheadle. The clinic offers a combined consultation, ECG and fully accredited transthoracic echocardiogram within a single 60-minute appointment. The results of these investigations will be discussed on the day and where necessary plans can be made for either any further investigations which may be recommended, or for ongoing follow-up or referral to other specialists as necessary. A full report of the consultation will be sent to you and your General Practitioner afterwards.
