Professional profile

I am a fully accredited and highly experienced general physician with specialist training in respiratory medicine. I gained all the relevant clinical, technical, research, teaching and management skills in university departments and in busy district general hospitals. This has been consolidated by 17 years of experience as a consultant in a district general hospital.

Over the last 10 years I have developed an innovative role as an integrated respiratory care physician. I have transformed and modernised COPD services for the patients of St Helen's and Knowsley into an award winning service totally community based. I am now the lead of a similar multidisciplinary community team in Warrington and Halton, however this team has an extended role in the diagnosis and treatment of the whole gamut of respiratory disease.

General respiratory medicine, more recently working as an integrated care chest physician across primary/secondary care. I have a special interest in airways disease, asthma and COPD, smoking cessation, cough and dyspnoea management and bronchiectasis.

I am passionate about improving diagnosis, treatment, appropriate and seamless continuing care of patients with respiratory disease. I have been a member of numerous committees advising on asthma, COPD and chronic respiratory diseases. I gained a diploma in health service management at Keele University, which has been invaluable in addition to my clinical knowledge in this respect.
