I run specialist clinics for young adults (16-25 years old) with rheumatology conditions as well as combined rheumatology and eye service clinics and combined clinics with the kidney service at Leicester Royal Infirmary.
I graduated from Nottingham University in 1995 and completed house officer jobs in Nottingham and Taunton before taking the opportunity to work in Australia for a year in accident and emergency medicine, intensive care medicine and paediatrics.
On returning to the UK I completed postgraduate training in general medicine in Nottingham and Leicester then rheumatology specialist training in Stoke, Nottingham and Leicester before becoming a consultant in Leicester in 2006. I was head of service for rheumatology in Leicester for over six years before resigning to spend more time with my family.

I have many publications in peer review journals and I am a clinical teacher at Leicester University Medical school as well as an educational supervisor to postgraduate doctors.
