Dr Chris Ellis

Chris Ellis gained his medical degree from the University of Southampton and then trained in Cardiology both at the Wessex Cardiothoracic Centre in Southampton, England, and at Green Lane Hospital, Auckland. He was appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist in 1996 at Auckland City Hospital. During this time, he also spent 10 years on staff at the Auckland University Medical School, as well as running a private practice at The Heart Group.

From 2000 to 2016 he was the Chairman of the New Zealand Acute Coronary Syndrome Audit Group, through which there was a significant improvement in the management of patients presenting with a heart attack across New Zealand. In 2021, he left the Auckland hospital after 25 years of public service as a Specialist Cardiologist, and he is now focussed full-time on Cardiology Consulting at The Heart Group.

He is an experienced Cardiologist, with a sub-specialist interest in acute coronary syndromes, with a desire to optimally manage heart attack patients long-term. He is also passionate about the prevention of cardiovascular disease. His interest in prevention includes in-depth knowledge of the management of lipids, CVS risk, and hypertension. At The Heart Group, he is the Medical Director of the CT cardiac service and performs CT Cardiac angiography, CT Calcium score tests, and echocardiograms.
