Background Information 
Professional profile:

My practice at the Spire reflects that of my NHS practice at the newly opened Tunbridge Wells Hospital. I have a broad interest in all aspects of Respiratory Medicine and offer a full service incorporating diagnosis, thorough investigation and review of  Respiratory disease backed up with a comprehensive radiology service. The initial consultation incorporates ‘same day’ spirometry, phlebotomy and basic radiology. Where more invasive investigation is warranted, I offer a comprehensive fibre-optic bronchoscopy service further strengthened by interventional  and higher resolution radiology. The cancer service is supported by discussion of all cancer patients at the Mulitdisciplinary team meeting on a weekly basis.

Personal profile:

My social life revolves around my wife and 3 young children. Having recently bought a family house in Goudhurst, I am now able to apply my interests in garden design and realising my aspiration to cultivate a small orchard. I have travelled widely, but have a particular affinity for the African continent, where I did volunteer work in Zimbabwe for the Medical Air Rescue Service. Prior to medicine, I studied at The University of Sussex achieving a First Class degree in Chemistry, followed by postgraduate work.
