Background Information 
Professional profile:
I qualified from the University of Sheffield Medical School in 1996 with an Honours degree in Medicine after completing a 3 year BSc Hons degree in Pharmacology at Manchester University. In 2005 I was awarded a Masters (in Respiratory Medicine) from Imperial College London.

My NHS practice is based at Watford General Hospital(Respiratory and General Internal Medicine) and The Royal Brompton Hospital (Allergy: food/drugs/insect stings/angio-oedema and urticaria). I am the Lead Clinician for Lung Cancer, Oxygen Therapy and Respiratory Medicine at Watford. I am also an Advanced Life Support Instructor and a post-graduate lecturer for PasTesT (MRCP part 2 clinical courses).

I have a special interest in asthma, airways disease, chronic cough, respiratory infection, allergy, sleep medicine and lung cancer. A full range of diagnostic and treatment services are offered for all these conditions at Spire Bushey and Harpenden Hospitals, including new diagnostic tests for lung cancer (bronchoscopy with trans-bronchial node aspiration), bed-side lung function tests and skin prick testing for common inhaled aero-allergens. In more difficult cases, my links with the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals allow access to specialist radiology and diagnostic sleep services.
Personal profile:
I enjoy golf, skiing, mountain biking, and hill walking
