Professional profile

I have been a Consultant Physician and Rheumatologist since 2001, undertaking NHS and Private practice in all forms of inflammatory arthritis, connective tissue disease and soft-tissue rheumatism. I run the Paediatric Rheumatology service at Luton, and see children of all ages in my NHS and private practice. I have played a key role in the development of acute medical service in my NHS hospital, as well as developing both adult and paediatric rheumatology. I have held several senior positions in the Trust, as well as being Treasurer for the British Society for Adolescent and Paediatric Rheumatology in the past.

I treat all forms of inflammatory and degenerative arthritis, with joint, tendon and soft tissue injections to patients of all ages.

I have performed hundreds of joint injections in my career, in both private and NHS practice.

I am the Clinical Director for Rheumatology at Luton & Dunstable University Trust I am Secretary for the East Anglian Rheumatology Society, and will take over as Eastern Regional rep. on the Executive Committee of the British Society for Rheumatology in April 2016.
