Background Information 
Professional profile:

I am a Consultant in Diabetes and Endocrinology at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, a major teaching hospital in the South West of England, and Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Bristol.

Within my NHS practice my interests include diabetes medicine (Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes), pituitary disease, thyroid disorders, parathyroid disorders, adrenal disease, neuroendocrinology and gynaecological endocrinology. I act as the clinical lead in thyroid disease and I am developing the thyroid disorders and thyroid eye disease service. In addition, I lead the gynaecological endocrinology service looking after women with Turner’s Syndrome and congenital adrenal hyperplasia.

I graduated from Newcastle upon Tyne University Medical School and undertook my junior medical training in the teaching hospitals of Newcastle and Edinburgh. Following completing the examinations for the Membership of the Royal College of Physicians (London), I was fortunate to work in Auckland, New Zealand, where I obtained an amazing insight into the scale of the problem of diabetes in the multicultural society of the South Pacific.

On my return, I was successful in obtaining a training post in Diabetes and Endocrinology and General Medicine in Oxford where I spent nearly a decade. Here I completed my clinical specialist registrar training in Diabetes and Endocrinology in a national centre for excellence, providing me with a superb breadth of experience in secondary and tertiary level specialist care.

My academic background includes excellent and comprehensive training in both basic science and clinical research. I was awarded a Wellcome Trust Research Training Fellowship to study molecular medicine and gained a place at Christ Church, Oxford University to complete my Doctor of Philosophy (D.Phil.). I have presented my work at national and international meetings. During my time in Oxford I was also appointed a Lecturer in Clinical Medicine at Christ Church, Oxford University. I have remained very actively involved in both junior doctor and medical student training.
I am passionate in delivering high quality of care for my patients and offer an individualised approach to patient care.

Personal profile:

One of my main interests is travel photography combining my passions of travel and photography. This has taken me to some amazing places including Cambodia, to the top of the highest mountain in South Asia (Mount Kinabalu) and the Inca Trial to Machu Picchu. And along the way I have meet wonderful people with diverse cultures allowing me to capture moments with the camera.
