Professional profile

I graduated from the University of Leeds in 1991 and then continued with my postgraduate education in Leeds and Manchester. I trained as a Research Fellow in Endocrinology and Specialist Registrar in Manchester before coming to Birmingham to take up a post of Consultant Physician with an interest in Diabetes and Endocrinology.

I have been in post as a Consultant for 10 years and therefore have a great deal of experience in all aspects of my speciality. My practice philosophy is to have people take an active role in their own health care. I like to educate my patients so they have a good understanding of their disease process, and what they can do in terms of prevention and treatment. I like to encourage them to modify their lifestyle and health habits.

I strongly believe in evidence-based medicine and the use of cutting-edge technology to prolong and improve quality of life but optimal results are best achieved when both ends do their share.

My training has been predominately in endocrinology and my specialist areas include clinical endocrinology. Currently I provide a wide range of clinical services at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital providing clinics in general and specialist endocrinology, including metabolic bone, pituitary and thyroid clinics. I also provide a general diabetes service.
