I treat all aspects of paediatric cardiac disease including assessment of heart murmurs, dizzy spells, faints, palpitations and chest pain. I undertake cardiac screening for children with a family history of congenital heart defects, arrhythmias or sudden death. I also perform detailed echocardiographic assessment of children and adults with congenital heart disease.

My subspecialty expertise is in advanced echocardiography, including 3D echocardiography, tissue Doppler, 2D strain, diastology, resynchrony optimisation and ventripoint volumetric analysis. Transoesophageal echocardiography, Echocardiographic support for cardiac surgical and interventional procedures, Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterisation and Fetal Cardiology.

I organised medical supplies and humanitarian aid during Libyan up-rising. I am Co-Founder of the MICC Malta International crises group and Co-Founder of the Violence Victim Support Group. I am a member of the One Voice for Women in Libya and wrote the constitution documents along with women’s right activists in the country with participating delegates from the EU and the UN, to protect women, children and old people from all kinds of violence during conflict. I am an active member of Save the Children and Scope; both children charities, supporting children around the world and in the UK.
