Personal Profile

In my leisure time, I enjoy playing tennis with my son and value family time. I have family members in 4 different countries (Jordan, America, Bahrain and UAE) which keeps life interesting and having a lot to look forward to. I enjoy watching football and strongly support Liverpool. I have acquired LFC membership and along with my son, we try to get to some matches at Anfield in Liverpool when time allows.

My overseas experience has helped me work in the NHS in many ways. Working in Jordan, a country known for its limited resources, meant I had to provide best and safest possible patient care with the available logistics.

I am constantly self-critical of my practice against patient outcomes. This has helped me develop and refine both my skills and knowledge. I have on so many occasions called patients to check on their progress after an introduction of a new treatment or to inform them of test results.
