I also mentor podiatrists and diabetes nurses for the prescribing qualification from the University of Huddersfield

I have an active research interest and am an investigator for a number of commercial and academic clinical trials in diabetes, cardiovascular medicine and diabetic foot disease.

Some of my recent awards and achievements include: In recognition of my contribution to the development and delivery of local services I have achieved Local Clinical Excellence Award Level 5 in 2016. National Quality in Care Award (Highly commended; September 2015): I led on the development of a Local MDT Diabetic Foot Protection Team.
