Background Information 
Professional profile:

As a Consultant Neurologist at The Walton Centre I cover all aspects of General Neurology and provide a specialist service for patients with neuromuscular and motor neurone disorders. I qualified from Queen's University of Belfast in 1995. 

 I continued my General Medical Training in Liverpool, Glasgow and Newcastle. I then proceeded to be a Clinical Research Fellow at the University of Sheffield where I completed my PhD in Motor Neurone Disease in 2004, after being awarded the Action Research Fellowship. I did my Specialist Registrar training in Neurology at the Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust, where I was appointed a Consultant Neurologist in 2007.  My higher medical training in Neurology was completed at The Walton Centre.

 I currently help set questions for postgraduate examinations for doctors conducted by the Royal Colleges of Physicians of London, Glasgow and Edinburgh. I am an Educational Supervisor for Neurology trainee doctors. My interest in medical ethics have led me to complete a LLM in Medical Law and Ethics in 2011. I have published extensively on a wide variety of topics such as headaches, myasthenia gravis, motor neurone disorders, peripheral neuropathy, epilepsy and medical ethics.

The HAT (Headache and Treatment) Clinic at Spire Murrayfield Hospital, Wirral, has been set up to provide patients who have a history of headaches, a convenient efficient and high-quality one stop clinic consultation. Patients will have a one-to-one consultation with a Neurologist. Where appropriate, patients will have an MRI of the brain on the same day as the clinic consultation.
