Professional profile

I have expertise in the assessment, diagnosis and management of all neurological conditions. My clinical interests reside in headache and cerebrovascular diseases. I am part of the tertiary headache and hyper-acute stroke services at St George’s Hospital. I offer a comprehensive service in the assessment, diagnosis and management of all types of headache, specifically chronic headaches and migraine. I am qualified to assess, diagnose and manage all types of stroke, TIA (mini-stroke), complications of stroke, and all other vascular conditions of the brain.

I am also able to provide guidance on cardiovascular disease and stroke prevention. I am an authority on blood pressure-related small vessel disease and other types of small blood vessel diseases of the brain and vascular dementia. In addition, I have expertise in the neuro-rehabilitation of many neurological conditions and have previously worked at the Wolfson neuro-rehabilitation centre and now see patients at Ascot Rehab in Bagshot.

I bring to Spire St Anthony's experience gleaned over several years from assessing and managing over 2,500 annual admissions to the hyper-acute stroke service, a quarter of which are acute neurological cases, the remainder being stroke cases. I have both inpatient and outpatient experience in the management of general neurology, specialist stroke and tertiary-level headache cases.

I qualified as a doctor from Imperial College in London during which I completed a BSc (1st class honours) and was awarded a variety of distinctions and prizes. Over the course of my junior doctor training, I developed an interest in neurology and embarked on and completed a PhD in cerebrovascular disease. I trained in neurology at St George’s University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and was appointed a consultant neurologist at St George’s in 2012.

As governance lead for neurology and stroke at St George's, I have a detailed understanding of the myriad of factors that are important in enhancing patient safety and satisfaction. I am an active contributor to clinical trial research and have several publications and understand the importance of medical research in enhancing patient care. My research varies from publications of interesting neurology cases in such journals as Practical Neurology and the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, to more scientific research, mostly in stroke-related areas, published in journals such as Cerebrovascular disease, Stroke, Circulation and JAMA Neurology.
