I run a tertiary specialist clinic for patients suffering from Ankylosing spondylitis and a combined rheumatology and eye service at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.
I have more than 17 years of clinical experience in Rheumatology. After qualifying in 1989, I underwent a structured postgraduate training in general medicine for three years. I later went on to train in Rheumatology at Manchester, Wrightington, Northampton and Leicester.
