Specialises in cardiology and intensive care medicine.

Professor Susana Price is a consultant cardiologist and intensivist at Royal Brompton Hospital.

She trained at King’s College London, and continued training in cardiology and intensive care medicine at St Thomas’, St George’s and Royal Brompton hospitals, London. She undertook a fellowship in echocardiography during her training, under Professor Jo Reolandt at the Thoraxcenter, Erasmus MC, Netherlands.

Professor Price was awarded the British Heart Foundation Kill Dando GUCH fellowship once she completed her training, thus allowing her to train for a further two years in imaging and management of critically ill grown-up congenital heart disease (GUCH) patients.
