"Patients have everything under one roof from consultation, tests and procedures. The staff enjoy their work and are passionate about it which reflects in their warm and welcoming approach."

Specialises in

I am a Consultant Cardiologist and the lead for cardiac imaging at the East Lancashire NHS Trust since 2015.

I qualified from the University of Sheffield in 2002, on the background of a distinction BMedSci (Hons) for my research in thrombosis in 1999 which I presented in the USA. I have trained in several national centres of excellence in London, including the Hammersmith Hospital (2005-06), the Royal Free Hospital (2010-13) and the Heart Hospital (2010-13), as well as Wythenshawe Hospital (2008-09) and Manchester Royal Infirmary (2014-15) more locally.

Imaging of the heart is frequently crucial in establishing the diagnosis and my specialist area of expertise is in all aspects of cardiac imaging. I perform weekly sessions of cardiac MRI, CT coronary angiograms and all aspects of both transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography in my routine clinical practice.

My work has been recognised and honoured with several distinguished international awards, including from the American Heart Association (2013) and Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (2014) and I continue to be invited to give presentations and chair educational sessions at conferences. I received my MD degree from UCL in 2015 and, to date, I have over 20 publications to my name in various peer-reviewed medical journals, with the second highest ResearchGate score in the entire ELHT NHS Trust.

If you feel you need a private cardiac CT or MRI scan, please contact my private secretary Neelu (see Contact Details at the bottom of this page) who will either arrange a consultation or a scan, after discussion with me.

If you are waiting for an NHS scan and would like to go private, once again please make contact with Neelu using contact details at the botton of the page and the cardiac CT / MRI scan can usually be arranged within a few days.
