I am a highly experienced Consultant Neurologist providing top-quality care and expertise to my patients. My practice is based at The Walton Centre for Neurology and Neurosurgery in Liverpool. I also provide a visiting neurology service at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and the Countess of Chester Hospital, bringing advice and expertise to patients in these locations and supporting colleagues across other specialties.

I am committed to medical education and regularly teach undergraduate and postgraduate students in neurological sciences. I am an Educational Supervisor to a number of trainees.
