Professional profile

I studied medicine at Robinson College Cambridge, graduating with a First Class degree in medical sciences, then completing my clinical training at Addenbrookes Hospital Cambridge, graduating in 1991 with Honours in Medicine. My junior doctor years were spent in London Teaching Hospitals, most notably The Guys Hospital Intensive Care Unit and The Hammersmith Hospital Cardiology department upon which I based my decision to follow a career in cardiology. Cardiology Training in the South East was followed with a break for PhD research back in Cambridge. At King's College Hospital I spent five years completing my training, where I gained experience in complex echocardiography under Dr Mark Monaghan, a leading expert in the field. I was appointed Consultant Cardiologist in May 2007 and enjoy an extremely busy NHS practice in general cardiology. I am now head of the large Queen Alexandra Hospital echo department and have lead educational roles for medical students, junior doctors and cardiac physiologists. I am specialised in the diagnosis of valve disease, ischaemic heart disease (angina and heart attacks) and heart failure. My philosophy is that good communication is key to good medical care.

Personal Profile

At home I enjoy my four children, two border collies and long suffering husband. I garden enthusiastically, if not always successfully, and in recent years I have taken up running, participating in regular half marathons and, of course, the Great South Run.
