Virtual consultations:

I am a senior Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist at Spire Leeds Hospital and at the Yorkshire Heart Centre, Leeds Teaching Hospital NHS Trust. I have over 17 years' experience as a Consultant caring for patients with all types of heart rhythm disorders and a vast experience in pacemaker and defibrillator implantation.

I am an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders (cardiac arrhythmia). I treat the whole spectrum of heart rhythm problems including atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia, ectopic beats and ventricular tachycardia including epicardial ablation. I specialise in all aspects of managing heart rhythm abnormalities including diagnostic testing, medical therapy and I have extensive experience in both radiofrequency catheter ablation and cryoablation procedures to treat, and in many patients, cure heart rhythm problems.

I am skilled in implantation and follow-up of cardiac electronic devices including loop recorders, pacemakers, biventricular pacemakers for heart failure and defibrillators (ICDs). I also lead the supra-regional left atrial appendage occlusion service for Yorkshire and the surrounding area, and I am the only fully trained implanting physician in the region.

I qualified with an Honours Degree in Medicine from the University of Manchester in 1996. I undertook specialist training in Cardiology and Electrophysiology in the West Yorkshire region and completed my PhD thesis in 2004 at the University of Leeds. Prior to my consultant appointment, I was fortunate enough to spend a fellowship year in Cardiac Electrophysiology and Devices in Christchurch, New Zealand, where I received intensive training in the management of patients with cardiac arrhythmias before retuning to the UK to complete my training.
