    Background Information 
    Professional profile:

    Having graduated in 1987 I trained in General Medicine at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. In 1993 I did MRCP and began training in haematology at Leicester Royal Infirmary. Later I was appointed as a specialist registrar in haematology at Royal Liverpool University Hospital where I finished the training in 1998. For the subsequent 4 years I worked at Oxford Haemophilia and Thrombosis Centre, Oxford. I then moved to Southampton University Hospital where I am still working as a consultant haematologist.

    Within the wide discipline of haematology I have developed a specialised interest in haemostasis and thrombosis. I am the Director of the Southampton Comprehensive Haemophilia Care Centre, and the lead clinician for haemostasis & thrombosis and transfusion medicine. I have extensive experience of patients with bleeding and thrombotic disorders of all kinds. I am particularly interested in the new antithrombotic drugs particularly target specific agents.  I am also the lead clinician for immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) and have developed the service for Platelet functions defects.

    While coagulation is my core subject I have an in-depth knowledge of the subject of molecular biology and have taken the full modules at MSc level in this subject, including Recombinant DNA Technology and Molecular diagnostics, Molecular Therapeutics, Clinical Genetics, Immunology, and Immunotherapy and this has aided me immensely in unifying concepts of clinical and laboratory coagulation.

    I work very closely with a number of other medical disciplines especially cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, respiratory medicine, rheumatology, and obstetrics and gynaecology.

    Personal profile:

    I live with my wife and three children. I am an avid reader and in particular enjoy contemporary fiction.
