Personal profile:

I live in East London with my wife who is a medical consultant and endocrinologist at both Newham hospital and Barts Health. We have two beautiful daughters who have started school and are enjoying life to the full.

Alongside work and family I am most interested in fitness and compete in various events including duathlons, trail/road running, cycling and most recently the Scotland Coast to Coast – traversing Scotland in a weekend by running, cycling and Kyaking.

I have been a medical advisor for Holby City television program.

I constantly strive for a greater knowledge of oneology and take care of an old Jaguar car.
