Virtual consultations:

I have been a consultant in respiratory medicine since 2005, in a joint post between Royal Papworth Hospital and Hinchingbrooke Hospital. This allows me to commit time to both highly specialist lung oncology work at Papworth, one of the country's leading respiratory hospitals, and to deliver that expertise more locally in Hinchingbrooke, while still caring for the very broad range of respiratory conditions encountered in a busy District General hospital. I am therefore able to offer specialist lung diagnostics, with an extensive experience in general respiratory medicine.

I specialise in diagnostics and management of lung oncology (lung cancer and mesothelioma), including access to bronchoscopy, EBUS and medical thoracoscopy. For these I am able to link with the regional service at Royal Papworth Hospital.

My other areas of interest cover more general respiratory conditions: diagnostics and management of asthma, COPD/emphysema and bronchiectasis.

I carry out around 100 interventional procedures per year through my NHS and private practice at Royal Papworth Hospital. These are predominantly bronchoscopy and EBUS procedures, but include medical thoracoscopy and placement of tunneled indwelling pleural catheters.

I am a keen contributor to medical education and I am an Undergraduate Tutor for Medicine in Hinchingbrooke Hospital, linked with the Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine.
