hello there,

I'm Ian Pinnell, a Healthcare Scientist Associate specalising in Cardiac Rhythm Management. I also volunteer for a national charity, love technology and am an advocate for public transport.

healthcare scientist associate

I’m a Healthcare Scientist Associate (HSA) specalising in Cardiac Rhythm Management. I help manage and maintain the Remote Monitoring service for over 1,000 patients with devices ranging from ICDs, CRT-Ds, CRT-Ps, ILRs and Pacemakers. I also assist with inpatient checks and coordinate other elements of the department.

I obtained the Society of Cardiological Science & Technology (SCST) Certificate in Electrocardiography and passed the practical certificate in October 2019.


Since 2006, I have been volunteering at Radio Cherwell, Oxford’s Hospital Radio station. I’ve hosted many programmes ranging from patient requests to hosting the flagship children’s show for five years. I’ve held many roles including Publicity Officer, Programme Controller & Trustee.

Whilst I still volunteer for Radio Cherwell, in 2015 I joined national charity, the Hospital Broadcasting Association. I currently serve as the Communications Executive, responsible for internal and external communications & PR.
