Professional profile

I am a Consultant in General Medicine, Diabetes and Endocrinology at Spire Harpenden, and the Lister Hospital in Stevenage where I was appointed to a substantive post in 2004, having worked as a locum consultant from 2002.

I obtained my MBChB at Groote Schuur Hospital Cape Town in 1990, followed by a Diploma in Child Health. I went on to specialise in adult General Medicine, Diabetes and Endocrinology. In 2000, I moved to the UK and spent two further years as a Specialist Registrar at the Middlesex Hospital before taking up my post at the Lister Hospital.

I am interested in all aspects of Endocrinology including thyroid, adrenal and pituitary disease, lipid disorders, obesity, polycystic ovary syndrome and metabolic bone disease/osteoporosis. In addition to Types 1 and 2 diabetes, I manage gestational and adolescent diabetes. I have close links with the St Bart's and Middlesex Endocrine Units in London as well as the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
