Consultant Cardiologist

BSc (Hons), MB BChir, MD, FRCP (Ed)

Specialises in

  • General cardiology
  • Assessment of chest pain

I attended medical school at both St Andrews and Cambridge Universities. I went on to complete my medical doctorate in Nottingham, focusing on the role of blood cells in heart attacks.

My specialist cardiology training was at St Thomas Hospital London and in 2009 I was awarded the Cordis International Interventional Fellowship and spent a year in Adelaide, Australia. In 2011 I was appointed Consultant Cardiologist at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and I also run the Cardiology Clinic at Roodlands Hospital, Haddington.

I welcome referrals for the assessment of chest pain, breathlessness, murmurs, palpitations and dizziness.

My specialist interest is percutaneous coronary intervention, but I am trained in all aspects of cardiology including pacemakers and valve disease.
