Treatment restrictions due to coronavirus (COVID-19)

As part of our longstanding relationship, we are proud to be dedicating our resources to the NHS at this important time. As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. We are making every effort to talk to impacted patients and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Professional profile

I am available to perform radiological investigations for private patients at Spire Bristol Hospital on a Thursday morning and early afternoon. I accept referrals from general practitioners and hospital consultants and provide same day reporting. Important results will be communicated to the referring doctor on the day of the investigation. I am available to perform US scans, CT scans and MRI scans and some interventional procedures. More complex interventional procedures can be performed at North Bristol NHS Trust and aftercare provided in a Spire bed under my direct care.

I am an interventional radiologist specialising in urological and renal imaging, as well as all arterial/venous imaging. I am Deputy Head of Training in the Severn Deanery School of Radiology and am Head of the Radiology Department at North Bristol NHS Trust. I have been a consultant radiologist for 12 years and prior to my consultant appointment, I spent 11 years in surgical, medical and radiological training posts.
