MBChB, FRCP, SCE RESP, LLM
I am a Consultant Respiratory Physician at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust. I am accredited in both Respiratory and General Medicine. I specialise in interstitial lung disease, pulmonary fibrosis, tuberculosis (TB), COVID-19, COPD/Emphysema, asthma, lung cancer, respiratory infection and chronic cough.
I independently established the Interstitial Lung Disease service across Calderdale and Huddersfield and I am the lead for TB services in Huddersfield.
I qualified from the University of Leeds with subsequent post graduate training completed in West Yorkshire. I am dual trained as both a Physician (awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians) and in the field of Medical Law (awarded a Masters in Medical Law and Ethics 2017). I have a keen interest in industrial lung disease compensation and medico-legal aspects of medicine.

I was born and brought up in Yorkshire but I am Indian by background and visit India on a regular basis. I am fluent in English and Bengali. I am a keen pianist and have played the piano since my childhood. I also enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter and dog; we enjoy travelling around the world and visiting new places. Over the last few years, I have developed a keen interest for interior house design, which I enjoy for utilising my creativity skills.
