Background Information 
Professional profile:

My primary medical qualification was in 1989 from Newnham College Cambridge.  Subsequently I did my junior doctor medical training in East Anglia and then at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford. Following this I spent three years at the Brain Repair Centre in Cambridge where I gained a PhD in research on treatment strategies for Multiple Sclerosis. For five years I was a Neurology Consultant at the Ipswich Hospital and Addenbrooke’s. In 2010 I moved to the West Suffolk Hospital and I now divide my week between busy general neurology clinics at the WSH and I run the Neuromuscular Service at Addenbrooke’s. I am also the Neurology Teaching Director for clinical students at Addenbrookes. 

Personal profile:

I am married to a Cambridge University Reader in Pathology and I have three children aged 3, 6 and 9 years old.
