Background Information 
Professional profile:

I completed my basic medical training and specialisation in general medicine in South Africa. I then spent six years at the Royal National Hospital for rheumatic diseases in Bath doing a clinical fellowship in rheumatology whilst also completing a PhD at the University of Bath. I spent three years as consultants/senior lecturer at Groote Schuur Hospital and University of Cape Town.
I was appointed as consultant physician/rheumatologist at Hull Royal Infirmary as of May 2001 and as Honary Senior lecturer at the Hull York Medical School in 2007. I thoroughly enjoy clinical practice in General Medicine and Rheumatology as well as teaching and clinical research.

Personal profile:

Born and raised in South Africa, I am now settled in Hull with my wife and three children. My interests include tennis, walking, computing and spending as much time as possible with family and friends.
