I have been a dual accredited Consultant Chest & General Physician since 2000. I am also the Lead Lung Cancer Clinician for Salford and Chair of the Northwest Sector MDT for Lung Cancer. I also participate in the care of acutely unwell patients when on-call for medicine at Salford and also care for patients on the Medical High Dependency Unit. As such I have wide experience in the field of general medicine and specialist respiratory medicine. At the core of my practice is a desire and willingness to communicate well and to put the patient and their wishes first. Many of my patients have multiple co-morbidities and as such I am well qualified to care for them.
