Professional profile

For more than five years, I have been working as a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at Kettering General Hospital, Northamptonshire.

I completed my higher medical training in both General Internal Medicine and Cardiology at the Leicester Deanery. To further complement my sub-specialist interests, I undertook a period of sub-specialist training at St. Bartholomews's Hospital, London (complex cardiac device implantation including permanent pacing, ICDs, and biventricular pacing) and Glenfield Hospital, Leicester (coronary intervention-angioplasty and stenting).

I am the the lead for the "Heart failure Programme" and the lead for "Complex cardiac device implantation" at Kettering General Hospital.

I have experience of being an investigator in many clinical trials and have published in peer-reviewed journals. Additionally, I have presented at national and international scientific meetings. I am actively involved in both undergraduate and postgraduate education.

To 'practice the art of healing' and not just focus on treating disease, describes my practice philosophy. It therefore encompasses a personalised and multi-disciplinary approach, and empathetic and judicious use of scientific evidence.
