Professional profile

I was appointed as a consultant in 2011. I have expertise in managing high cholesterol and other blood fats, other risk factors for heart disease and stroke such as hypertension or those with a strong family history of blood vessel disease. I have an interest in the evaluation of individuals who do not tolerate standard lipid-lowering therapies. I gained experience in medical weight management at the Imperial Weight Centre, London and established the NHS service in Cardiff for medical weight management in 2015. I have run a weight management service in Spire since 2013. I lead a clinical biochemistry and diagnostic medicine service which involves evaluation and treatment of a variety of metabolic conditions, such as problems related to calcium and sodium metabolism and vitamin deficiencies including vitamin D and hormones.

I am medical lead for the Wales Familial Hypercholesterolaemia Service and the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board Weight Management Service. I developed and am now course director for the MSc in Preventative Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of South Wales.
