Background Information 
Professional profile:

I qualified as a doctor in 1992. My cardiac training was predominantly based at University College Hospital and The Heart Hospital in London where I trained in general cardiology and interventional cardiology.

I completed my training in Bristol where I focussed on interventional cardiology, heart failure, complex pacing and adult congenital and structural heart disease. I made the move from Bristol in 2009 in order to be closer to my family and was appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist at Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

My practice focuses on the management of heart failure and pacing/complex device therapy, investigation, screening and management of coronary artery disease including invasive and CT angiography and adult congenital and structural heart disease.

My practice also includes other aspects of general cardiology including hypertension, arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, chest pain and syncope. I also have an interest in cardiovascular screening and believe that as a cardiologist it is important to focus on the prevention of cardiovascular disease at the first opportunity.

Personal profile:

Outside work I enjoy family life with my wife and children.

My wife and I are keen walkers and my children keep me very busy. I also enjoy cooking and all sports.
