Professional profile

Having completed my training in general medicine and general cardiology in Glasgow, I obtained a PhD in cardiac cellular electrophysiology looking at the progression of ventricular fibrillation in ischemia, an area in which I have published widely. Following this, I became a clinical lecturer at the University of Manchester and began my training in clinical electrophysiology and device implantation at the Manchester Heart Centre. During this time, I researched and published on many aspects of atrial fibrillation and inherited arrhythmia. To further my clinical experience I undertook a clinical electrophysiology fellowship at the prestigious Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario. I have been working as a consultant cardiologist at Castle Hill Hospital since Feb 2014, and alongside Neil Hobson, have expanded the regional arrhythmia service.

As an experienced practitioner, I delighted to offer thorough examination and work-up of all arrhythmic conditions including inherited arrhythmias. I perform the full spectrum of cardiac ablations including complex ablations of conditions such as atrial fibrillation and atrial tachycardia. For heart failure and inherited arrhythmia patients I can offer implantation of all cardiac rhythm management devices including defibrillators and biventricular pacemaker/defibrillators.

In recognition of my on-going research activities, I have been made an Honorary Senior Lecturer in Cardiology at Hull York Medical School. I am establishing collaborations with the Engineering department to advance the knowledge of signal processing of cardiac rhythm in health and disease.

I am passionate about increasing the coordination of arrhythmia services across Yorkshire. To facilitate this I have been instrumental in establishing the biannual Yorkshire EP meetings.

Personal Profile

As a true Celt, I can’t stop my feet from tapping along to folk music. Along with my flute and penny whistle I can often be found taking part in jam sessions across the East Ridings.
