I specialise in General Cardiology and I have a sub-specialty interest in coronary angioplasty, percutaneous coronary intervention (angioplasty), echocardiography and trans-oesophageal echocardiography. I have been in Private Practice since 2007.I obtained my medical degree from Bristol University in 1993 and subsequently trained in general and interventional cardiology in the UK and New Zealand, working in four interventional centres. I was appointed as Consultant Cardiologist to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital in 2006 to set up a new, local angioplasty service. This commenced in October 2008 and now provides a highly regarded service to over 1,000 patients per year. As a National Heart Research Fund fellow, I completed my MD at the University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire and the University of Warwick in 2002. I am a BSE accredited echocardiographer.I am now the Divisional Medical Director for Speciality Medicine at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust and I also hold the post of NHS England Cardiac Lead for the West Midlands.
