Dr Lee initially qualified from Edinburgh University, and subsequently undertook her cardiology training on the West of Scotland rotation.

She commenced her substantive consultant appointment in April of 2002 with our trust. She created the cardiac MRI service for the trust in 2003, and has developed this service for the benefit of the local population. She commenced training in cardiac CT in 2009, and now works with Dr Dan Higham to run this service within National guidance, as the first local trust to do so. She continues to undertake an active clinical service, and has been in the top 20 consultants nationally for the past two years based on the findings of the national out-patient satisfaction survey.
