Professional profile

I was born, brought up and educated in the Midlands. I qualified as a doctor at the University of Birmingham Medical School, graduating in 1991. I completed my post-graduate medical training in Birmingham and Edinburgh. I passed the Membership of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP) exams in 1994. I then undertook Specialist Training in Diabetes and Endocrinology on the West Midlands Specialist Training Programme.

I was appointed as a Consultant in Diabetes and Endocrinology in April 2011 at Calderdale and Huddersfield Trust Foundation Trust. I was Lead Clinician in Diabetes and Endocrinology from 2002 until 2012. I was Vice-Chairman of the Medicine and Allied Division from 2007 to 2011, when I took over as Chairman (2011-Present). I was appointed Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Leeds (2004-present). I am involved in interviewing, teaching and examining medical students. I am Clinical supervisor, and Education supervisor to a number of postgraduate doctors in training. I was awarded a Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians (FRCP) in 2005. I am a MRCP examiner for the Royal College of Physicians of London. I undertook a Masters degree (MSc) in Clinical Management at the University of Durham, which I completed in 2009. I am a member of the British Medical Association.

I have been involved in charity work for many years. I am the founder and chairman of Slumdoctor Project, a charity that specializes in delivering medical care in the slums in India and have been running ‘Medical Camps’ for over 10 years. He is a Medical adviser to SantSarWanDass Charitable Hospital in Jalandhar (India), a hospital that now has 205 beds, and has been established and run purely on a charitable basis.

My specialist area is in Diabetes and Endocrinology. This includes the evaluation of hypothalamic, pituitary, adrenal, thyroid, gonadal (including Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and its complications), Hirsutism, obesity, tiredness and vitamin D

I have a holistic approach to medical practice, understanding that subtle changes in one hormone can have an knock on effect on all hormones, producing a significant impact on well being. I undertake a detailed investigation of hormonal systems (for e.g. TSH, cortisol, Testosterone) and their sub fractions (for e.g. FT4, FT3, DHEAS, Androstenedione).
