Background Information 
Professional profile:

I studied Medicine at Cambridge University and then at St Bartholomews and the Royal London Medical School, qualifying in 1999.  After four years in general medicine at the Royal London and Whipps Cross hospitals, I became a lecturer in medical education at St George’s hospital, completing a postgraduate certificate in education whilst continuing my clinical practice. I trained in Cardiology at the Heart Hospital, University College London and undertook higher specialist training in Electrophysiology and inherited cardiac conditions. I became a consultant Cardiologist in 2012 and set up an electrophysiology service at Maidstone Hospital.  I also practise at St Thomas’s Hospital in London. Services I offer include the treatment of angina (chest pain), heart attack, heart failure, high blood pressure and cholesterol, and heart valve disease.  I also specialise in the treatment of all heart rhythm abnormalities and implant pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD’s) and biventricular devices for heart failure. 

Personal profile:

I captained Downing College waterpolo team and played for Cambridge University, as well as playing whilst at Yale University, USA.  I regularly run as part of my commute and have competed in Olympic and Sprint distance triathlon.  I continue to swim recreationally, and enjoy golf when I can, but most of my spare time is spent with my wife and 4 year old son.
