Professional profile

I was trained at St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical School, qualifying in 1997. I gained membership of the Royal College of Physicians in 2000. I completed my MD thesis in Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance at The Royal Brompton Hospital in 2006, and trained in cardiology in London, Bristol and Australia.

I was appointed Consultant Cardiologist at the Royal Berkshire Hospital and visiting Consultant Cardiologist at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in 2009. I am a clinical lead for cardiac imaging at the Royal Berkshire Hospital and have established a successful cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) service in Reading and overseen a rapid expansion of the CMR service at the Royal Surrey County Hospital.

I have been asked to speak at regional and national CMR meetings and review manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals. I was made Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 2013.

I am trained in all aspects of general cardiology, with particular interest in the non-invasive assessment of chest pain, breathlessness and cardiac dysfunction.

Clinical Interests

Special Clinical Interests: General cardiology, valvular heart disease, heart failure, cardiomyopathy, echo (including stress echo and TOE), cardiovascular MRI, and cardiac CT.
