Since August 2008, we have run an Erectile Dysfunction Clinic, seeing the full range of ED problems with a particular interest in patients with cardiovascular disease. I have been invited by several groups to give lectures in the field both locally and nationally and internationally. I was part of a National Forum to put together a tool kit that looks at all aspects of erectile dysfunction. I liaised with the group that performed the ZEN trial to parallel nest my patients. I performed the first Pudendal stent in Europe. This was published in the European Heart Journal as an Editorial in 2012.
