Professional profile

I am a consultant cardiologist and provide a comprehensive consultation to my patients. I am happy to assess patients with chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness/funny turn, blackout, palpitations, heart failure, high blood pressure and risk factor management.

I graduated from the University of Dundee in 2002 and went on to work in Dundee and Edinburgh. Upon completion of MRCP in 2005, I undertook cardiac research at the University of Edinburgh, before moving south to undergo cardiology training in Hull and East Yorkshire in 2009. I have a keen interest in structural and complex coronary intervention, and was successful in obtaining a Trans-Catheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) Fellowship at Kings’ College Hospital, London. Following this, I was then appointed Consultant Cardiologist at Castle Hill Hospital in 2016, where I am currently a high-volume operator in coronary intervention, treating patients with heart attacks and stable coronary disease.

I chose to become a consultant in Hull as I saw the opportunity to further develop a very dynamic cardiac department, and expand services. At Castle Hill, I successfully established the Hull and East Yorkshire TAVI service to serve the unmet need of the local population, who previously had to travel to other tertiary cardiac centres for this specialised treatment. As TAVI Lead, my team and I aim to deliver high quality care.

I also have an interest in medical education and training, and am currently the Training Programme Director for cardiology trainees within East Yorkshire.
