Professional profile

My training in cardiology took place in London at St Mary's Hospital, Hillingdon Hospital and the Royal Brompton.

This offered me unique opportunities to work in the Peart-Rose hypertension clinic at St Mary's, the Jane Somerville grown-up congenital heart disease unit and the Derek Gibson echo unit, each at the Brompton.

As a consequence I have wide experience in the management of all aspects of cardiology including angina, hypertension, heart failure , assessment of murmurs, arrhythmias, pacemakers and syncope.

In 1998, the British Heart Foundation awarded me a major research grant to work in the heart failure research unit of the National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College. This led to a number of research publications and an MD degree in 2002. It was at the Brompton that I developed my interest in angioplasty. I trained under Professor Ulrich Sigwart who developed coronary stents. As an interventional fellow at the Brompton, I performed research into the emerging technology of drug eluting stents. I was awarded a certificate of completion of specialist training in 2002.

I treat patients with every kind of heart and cardiovascular disease and patients with angina who require angioplasty.
