I specialise in cardiovascular medicine including hypertension, ischaemic and coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and grown-up congenital heart disease. I perform invasive coronary angiography, permanent pacing including defibrillators and cardiac resynchronisation.

I have performed several thousand cardiac catheterisations since starting in 1989 and several hundred pacemaker implants, several thousand echocardiograms and non-invasive cardiac investigations including stress testing, ambulatory ECG and blood pressure recordings. I assess complex patients with multi-system disorders with cardiovascular disease and cardiomyopathies.

I became the first and only student in my medical school to pass MBBS with Honours in 1984 with distinctions in Medicine and Paediatrics, Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Pathology and Microbiology, Pharmacology and Forensic Medicine. I did a postgraduate degree in Medicine (MD) with Honours in 1989 and a Specialist Cardiologist (DM) degree in 1991. I worked as a specialist Cardiology Registrar from 1989 to 1993 in India and 1993-1997 in the UK.

I was appointed Consultant and Assistant Professor in Cardiology in 1997 in the Postgraduate Institute of Medicine and Research, Lucknow India and Consultant Cardiologist at Bro-Morgannwg NHS Trust South Wales in 2002. While covering the broad range of DGH Cardiology I was able to develop and lead a Team of Heart Failure Multidisciplinary Team for the ABM Trust in Wales. I was appointed Clinical Teacher to the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff in 2003.

I was appointed Consultant Cardiologist at Walsall in 2009 and appointed Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Birmingham School of Medicine in 2009 as well. I was appointed Deputy Head of the Walsall Teaching Academy for Undergraduates in 2011 and Postgraduate Tutor for Medicine in 2014.

I have been a Senior Clinical Examiner for the University of Birmingham School of Medicine and member of the Postgraduate Medical School and Royal College of Physicians since 2011.

I lead Heart Failure Services and was co-chair of the Black Country Heart Failure Network during the period of the Cardiac Networks. I lead Postgraduate Education in Medicine in the Trust. I have chaired and co-chaired Clinical examinations of the Royal College of Physicians within the UK and overseas.
