Professional profile

I have been a consultant for 10 years and have gained considerable experience in dealing with various aspects of endocrine diseases. I specialise in endocrinology and diabetes with special interests in thyroid, gonads and ED, parathyroid, adrenal and pituitary disease.

Currently, I am the lead for diabetic feet, endocrine oncology and hyponatraemia in my trust. I am actively involved in teaching. I have special interests in new therapies and technologies in diabetes and endocrine care. My main endocrine interests are adrenal, pituitary, gonads and thyroid disease.

After obtaining my Medicine Diploma from Damascus Medical School, I completed my postgraduate training in general medicine in Damascus University Hospitals and achieved two qualifications in general medicine - GIM. Following this, I was involved in research in diabetic foot disease with Professor Andrew Bolton in Manchester Infirmary between 1999-2001. After obtaining MRCP UK, I specialise in diabetes and endocrinology at Ipswich and Cambridge University Hospitals. In 2009 after CCST, I worked in my first consultant post at West Hertfordshire NHS trust before moving to Guy’s and St Thomas NHS Trust. I Joined East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust in 2011 and was appointed to a substantive post at the trust in 2013.
