Treatment restrictions due to coronavirus (COVID-19)

As part of our longstanding relationship, we are proud to be dedicating our resources to the NHS at this important time. As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. We are making every effort to talk to impacted patients and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Professional profile

I have been a Consultant Cardiologist and research lead at Royal Derby Hospital since 2010. I strongly believe that there are no shortcuts or substitutes for experience. Assessing and treating patients with potentially life threatening heart diseases leaves no room for complacency or error. Appropriate investigation followed by sympathetic reassurance is the key to returning to a normal life.

I am highly experienced in many aspects of heart disease, my expertise have been acquired from a long traditional training programme at Glenfield Hospital in Leicester. I was awarded an M.D in 2008 after a period of research in intervention at the University of Leicester. I subsequently undertook an Interventional Fellowship at the highly renowned Leeds General Infirmary and gained a wealth of experience in Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI).

I have performed at least 5,000 coronary angiograms and 2,500 simple and complex PCI procedures, primarily via a radial route and consider myself to be a radial operator. I was instrumental in establishing primary angioplasty for the acute management of myocardial infarction (heart attack) at the Royal Derby Hospital and I have also successfully established an uncontrolled hypertension clinic.

I pride myself in being an approachable and fun loving guy with a keen interest in golf.
