    Background Information 
    Professional profile:
    I have a General (internal) medicine weekly outpatient clinic at Spire Parkway Hospital on Tuesday evenings, and will be happy to see new referrals at short notice if needed. I provide a consulting service for inpatients at Parkway, and along with Dr Martin Sandler, I cover the acute medical admissions to the unit and provide acute medical cover for any surgical inpatient requiring it.

    Together with Dr Sandler I provide a Care of the elderley (acute and rehabilitation) clinic, with a full range of acute, rehabilitation and domiciliary consultation services for the elderley residents of the borough. I have developed a specialist interest clinic in Parkinson's disease based at the Medical Day Hospital at Solihull, and am seeking to develop a falls clinic.

    I am also fully trained in diagnostic and most therapeutic upper gastro-intestinal endoscopy techniques, for example, variceal and ulcer sclerotherapy, balloon and rigid dilation techniques and gastrostomy insertion. I also have a wide experience of lower gastro-intestinal endoscopy (flexible sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy) and therapeutics techniques (polypectomy and electrocautery). I carry out a weekly endoscopy list at the Parkway, on Friday afternoons, and am happy to receive direct access referrals.
    Personal profile:
    I have two children who are both wonderful, energetic and time absorbing. I am church secretary at Olton Baptist Church with responsibilty for church administration.
    I have a longstanding interest in computing, dating back to an old BBC Model B microcomputer. I have since upgraded to a RISC PC which I have used extensively for both leisure and hospital purposes.
    I contribute regularly to Archive magazine, and have written several small utility programs which have been published along with with a larger suite used for generating endoscopy reports.
    House purchase necessitated my developing interests in DIY and gardening, although the latter is at the present time limited to purely manual skills.
