Background Information 
Professional profile:

I have been a consultant cardiologist for 11 years. I specialise in coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease and interventional cardiology. I am the lead clinician for interventional cardiology in Leeds. I run the largest transcatheter aortic valve implantation service in the UK.

I deal with all areas of cardiology but specialise in coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease and interventional cardiology. I perform coronary angiography and angioplasty/stenting. I have performed more transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) than any other cardiologist in the UK, with TAVI outcomes in Leeds far superior to national averages.

I have performed over 5000 coronary angiograms, over 3000 coronary angioplasty/stent procedures and over 800 transcatheter aortic valve implantation procedures during my 15 year career in interventional cardiology.

I am clinical lead for interventional cardiology in Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust. I am lead for transcatheter valve intervention in Leeds.

I am a clinical associate professor at the University of Leeds and have published more than 70 papers in scientific journals.

Personal profile:

Outside work I spend my time with my wife and two teenage children, together with our hungry labrador and enormous cat. My greatest hobby is sport, particularly rugby union. While injury forced me to hang up my boots and turn into a low-level enthusiastic hockey plaer, my passion for the oval-ball game is undiminished. I also enjoy the countryside, particularly visiting my parents' farm in Shropshire.
