I am a General Consultant Cardiologist with special interest in cardiac pacemaker devices and heart failure. I was appointed Consultant Cardiologist at Barking, Havering Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT) in 2012 and am the Trust Clinical Lead for Heart Rhythm. In 2017, I received Consultant Excellence Award for delivering high quality patient focused services to BHRUT. My NHS clinics are held at King George Hospital, Essex. I became an Honorary Consultant at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London in 2013. I implant pacemakers, defibrillators and biventricular devices at the largest state-of-the-art unit in the UK- Barts Heart Centre.

I graduated from United Medical and Dental School of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital, University of London in 1997 (now called GKT) and completed cardiology training at the London Deanery in leading teaching hospitals in the southeast including: St Thomas’ Hospital, King’s College Hospital, St George’s Hospital, London and Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton.

I have successfully led service improvements in heart failure diagnosis and chest pain assessment at BHRUT and have written several policy documents on improving patient safety and care. I continue to be involved in quality improvement, training and education of junior doctors and have published widely in several peer reviewed journals.
