I trained in London and was appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist at the Sussex Cardiac Centre in 2004. I also work at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital where I undertake a specialist adolescent clinic.
I am trained in all aspects of general cardiology and specialise in echocardiography. I hold British Society of Echocardiography accreditation in both transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography and European accreditation in paediatric and congenital echocardiography.
