Professional profile

I qualified from the University College and Middlesex Hospital Medical School in 1991. I did my SHO posts in Basildon in Essex followed by a stint in Intensive Care at the Whittington Hospital in London. I started my diabetes career on the Isle of Wight and continued with a succession of registrar jobs in South East Thames. During my time at Medway and Dartford I was a part-time GP in the evenings at a local surgery.

I took time off during my training to train in Intensive Care medicine at St Thomas' and St George's Hospitals in London. I finished my training in Diabetes in 2001, but instead of taking up a consultant post in Dartford, I opted to give it all up and go and do research in America. I was offered a job as a research fellow in endocrinology at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota where I endured two winters with the temperatures dropping to -80 degrees F.

I returned to the UK in September 2003, and was locum consultant at King's College Hospital and the Homerton Hospital (both in London), until my appointment at the N&N which I commenced in September 2004.

I was appointed as an Honorary Reader in Medicine at Norwich Medical School, University of East Anglia in 2017.

Personal Profile

I am married with a son and daughter. I try to practice what I preach by running several miles a week, lifting weights and generally keeping fit. I enjoy all aspects of cinema and film, as well as reading. I try to keep up to date with the medical literature by subscribing to several medical journals (although I try to read them only after my children's bedtime).

I am from North India and speak Hindi and Urdu fluently.
