I am particularly interested in Acute & Emergency Neurology and have a sub-specialist interest in Neurological Sleep Disorders.

Personal Profile

I live with my wife and three daughters in the Cheshire countryside. I have lived in the Greater Manchester area for nearly 20 years and have just made my first forays into starting a smallholding to run alongside my medical practice, aiming to grow a wide variety of fruit and vegetables and to keep livestock. I am a keen runner, time and daughters permitting (!), and also enjoy fell-walking and bird-watching.
