Professional profile

I have been a Consultant in Clinical Biochemistry/Metabolic Medicine since 1999 with a particular interest in hyperlipidaemia (abnormal cholesterol and triglyceride), renal (kidney and bladder) stone disease and calcium metabolism.

I specialise in management of conditions with a biochemical basis but in particular in the investigation and treatment of abnormal lipids (cholesterol, triglycerides etc), the investigation of causes and the prevention of renal (kidney, bladder) stones, and the investigation and management of disorders of calcium metabolism.

I am the Specialty Lead for the Clinical and Specialist services for Berkshire and Surrey Pathology Services. I am the Director of the Cardiovascular Biomarkers Laboratory in Guildford, which has Associate Supra-regional Assay Service status. I am on the Steering Group for the National Audit of the Management of Familial Hypercholesterolaemia at the Clinical Effectiveness and Evaluation Unit at the Royal College of Physicians in London. I am a committee member of the Steering group for the Hampshire Familial Hypercholesterolaemia Cascade Service.

In addition to my clinical work, I am also a Visiting Senior Fellow in Metabolic, Endocrine and Nutritional Medicine at the University of Surrey in Guildford.

Personal Profile

Family life is very important to me and I am lucky to have a supportive wife, who manages my clinics but is also a full time physiotherapist, and I am a proud father of 2 daughters who are both at University. I enjoy playing the piano rather badly, and golf and tennis (also badly).
