Professional profile

I have practised Cardiology for 8 years but more specifically electrophysiology for nearly 6 years. I was previously a locum Consultant Cardiologist in Bristol followed by my permanent appointment at the Glenfield Hospital Leicester in 2009. I find this area of cardiology stimulating and rewarding by diagnosing and treating patients with arrhythmias. My training started with a research in cardiovascular genetics at the University of Cambridge, being awarded a PhD for my work. Subsequently, my cardiology training was in the South West at Bristol and Bath Hospitals, culminating in a year's fellowship in electrophysiology at Southampton General Hospital. Palpitations, arrhythmias, AF- diagnosis and treatment/ cardioversion/ ablation/pacemakers. Diagnosis and management of sudden cardiac death and syncope.

Personal Profile

I am married with 3 boys, so I have a busy family life. I am very keen on sports so enjoy training and run, swim and cycle. A Padi certified open water diver, I am also interested in diving, visiting the Great Barrier Reef, Egypt and West Indies. If not watching films, I like to relax with good food and wine.
