Professional profile

My main interest is the clinical management of patients with heart disease. In an era when doctors are trained to perform tests and procedures, my aim is to provide a clinical service, supported by technology not replaced by technology. This involves a closer involvement with patients, both before and after any procedures, not seeing the procedure as the end point. I am happy to see patients with a whole range of cardiac problems as the principles of sensible clinical management remain the same.

Personal Profile

My main medical interest outside cardiology is Medical Law and Ethics. I have a Masters in Medical Law and sit on both research and clinical ethics committees. A significant proportion of the teaching I do, both under and post graduate, involves Medical Law and Ethics.

I am also interested in the role Medical Humanities can have in producing doctors better able to assess their patients needs.
