Specialises in

I am a Consultant Neurologist at The Walton Centre and underwent general medical training in the North West of England where I obtained membership of The Royal College of Physicians. Following this I had specialist neurology training at Greater Manchester Neuroscience Centre. 

I have a special interest in movement disorder with a focus on Parkinson’s disease, atypical Parkinsonism, tremors, ataxia, dystonia and tics. I am involved in advanced treatment for these patients including deep brain stimulation, botulinum toxin (botox) and apomorphine injections. I manage patients with general neurological conditions including peripheral nerve disease, muscle disease, multiple sclerosis, memory disorders , epilepsy, neurogenetics, neuroimmunology, neuromuscular disorders, neuro-ophthalmological conditions and sleep disorders etc.

In addition, I have a clinical interest in headaches and migraines and provide a wide range of treatments including nerve blocks, multiple cranial nerve blocks and cranial botulinum toxin (botox) injections.

As an honorary clinical lecturer at The University of Liverpool, I am actively involved in teaching undergraduate medical students. Being the royal college tutor, I oversee the training of postgraduate doctors at The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust and I am involved in a number of clinical trials in Parkinson’s disease at The Walton Centre.
