"Spire Hospital Bristol is easy to access and offers a supportive environment for patients and staff."

Specialises in

I have been a Consultant in Metabolic Medicine since 2014, specialising in lipid disorders, diabetes, inherited metabolic diseases, electrolyte imbalance and laboratory medicine. As a practising lipidologist, I am actively involved in research of cholesterol lowering medications and offer latest treatments to my patients. I also have extensive experience in management of patients with side effects of statins or uncertainty over use of statins.

I see patients with cholesterol disorders, prediabetes and metabolic syndrome, disorders of electrolytes and investigation of rare metabolic disorders. I also advise patients and other doctors on the implications of blood tests. I consult patients with metabolic effects of antipsychotics and antidepressants; investigation of metabolic disorders and metabolic optimisation.

In addition to my clinical role, I am Clinical Lead for Pathology at Weston General Hospital. As an honorary senior lecturer for University of Bristol, I teach and mentor students and doctors in training. I provide education leadership as Year 3 Lead for University of Bristol North Somerset Academy, and regularly teach nationally on GP courses on laboratory medicine and metabolic disorders.
