Professional profile

I qualified from St Bartholomew’s Medical College, London in 1993 (Dean’s Prize in Medical Sciences, First Senior Scholarship in Medicine, Slott Prize in Chemical Pathology, Weitzman Prize in Cardiology, MBBS with Honours) after attaining a First Class Honours BSc degree from King’s College London. I then undertook training posts in London, including the Royal Brompton, London Chest, Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals before completing my specialist Cardiology training at King’s College Hospital, London. I was awarded my MD in clinical invasive cardiology research in 2004 (University of London). I was then awarded the British Heart Foundation Advanced Training Scholarship which allowed me to spend a year training in invasive cardiology at the Swiss Cardiovascular Centre, Berne, Switzerland before returning to the UK to complete my specialist training at King’s.

I provide expertise in all aspects of coronary artery disease (acute and stable coronary syndromes), heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation, valvular heart disease and invasive coronary angiography and permanent pacemaker implantation.

I was appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist at Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in 2005. I'm also an Honorary Consultant Cardiologist at the Essex Cardiothoracic Centre, Basildon, Essex.

I have extensive experience in all aspects of adult Cardiology and am actively involved in clinical cardiac research. I am the Cardiac Clinical Research Lead at Southend Hospital.

I have published extensively in the fields of cardiology, invasive cardiology and cardiac bio-markers with more than 20 original scientific papers, invited Editorials and case reports in peer reviewed Journals. I have written and co-written book chapters in the field of Cardiology as well as >40 abstract and oral presentations to National and International Scientific Conferences.

I welcome appropriate patients wishing to refer and pay for treatment themselves without the need for a GPs letter of referral.

I am available for appointments at Spire Wellesley Hospital on alternate Wednesday afternoons and every Friday morning.

Clinical Interests

Atrial fibrillation

Special Clinical Interests: I continue to have a very active clinical research interest as the Cardiac Research Lead as part of my work within the NHS.
