Pain control and managing difficult symptoms in patients with cancer, both those undergoing active oncology treatment and those with more advanced disease, form the main part of my work. A comprehensive review of the patients’ physical, emotional and social needs is the most important element of my practice.
I also have a substantial interest in symptom control for patients who suffer from chronic illnesses other than cancer, such as Parkinson’s Disease and other degenerative neurological conditions; chronic cardiopulmonary diseases such as heart failure and COPD as well as advanced renal failure.
Having studied in Aachen, Germany, I came to England as a junior doctor and soon decided to specialise in Palliative Medicine. I trained in symptom control and palliative care in various hospitals and hospices in Cardiff, Oxfordshire, Cambridge and Essex. I work as a Consultant Palliative Care Physician at Isabel Hospice in Welwyn Garden City since 2007 to support patients and their families in Hertfordshire.
Pain Management in patients with non-curative diseases and End Of Life Care. Supporting patients with difficult to control symptoms during active management of cancer eg during chemotherapy. Supportive care and symptom management in neurological conditions (eg Parkinson's Disease and Motor Neuron Disease) and other non-malignant chronic illnesses (eg cardiac, respiratory and renal conditions).

I spend most of my free time with my four young children and at their primary school where I am the chairperson of the Parents-Teacher-Association. Working in my vegetable and flower garden provides me with important time out to relax as do our recently acquired flock of chickens. When training in Cardiff, I was introduced to quilting and still enjoy the associated creativity and meeting other local quilters.Back to top
