Background Information 
Professional profile:

I am a consultant Neurologist at Walton Centre since 2013 & also work as a Visiting stroke neurologist to the Aintree University Hospital.

My clinical interests include rapid assessment of TIA, acute stroke intervention & management of complex cerebrovascular disease including AVM & aneurysms.

My other interests include general neurology & epilepsy.

I have undergone my general Neurology training in the Southwest region & then had further subspecialisation in stroke medicine. I am one of the few neurologists in the country to hold dual accreditation in both Neurology & stroke medicine.

I currently lead the stroke intervention service at Walton centre & regularly take part in national & international meetings actively to keep me updated.

Personal profile:

I live with my wife & daughter on the Wirral. I enjoy watching sports & documentaries. I also love travelling & like to know about different cultures around the world.
