I am the clinical lead for the osteoporosis and ankylosing spondylitis services. My practise however is diverse and spans the entire range of rheumatology from localised back or soft-tissue rheumatism to multisystem disease.I perform a wide range of procedures including ultrasound guided and non-guided injections, as well as suprascapular nerve blocks and caudal epidurals. In addition to scientific papers, I am the author of the bone health guidelines for Portsmouth and south-east Hampshire and one of the founding authors of a popular on-ine resource for GPs called gpnotebook.co.uk.I am a frequent speaker at local patient conferences and is a tutor for the Wessex rheumatology ultrasound group. On a more national stage, I give lectures for the British Medical Journal master classes in musculoskeletal medicine and rheumatology and run injection courses for the Royal College of General Practitioners.I have been a consultant rheumatologist in Portsmouth since 2006. I was born in London, from Mauritian Chinese parents, I qualified from Oxford University Medical School in 1994 and undertook my junior rotations in Oxford, Bath and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.I trained in rheumatology in the north-east of England, where I was awarded an Arthritis Research UK Clinical Research Fellowship. My PhD research was focused on early rheumatoid arthritis and biochemical markers of rheumatic disease.
