Professional profile

I graduated in 1992 from Cambridge University. Having passed MRCP in 1995, I undertook cardiology specialist training in Wessex. I spent two years at the National Heart Lung Institute and Royal Brompton Hospitals, London to further my clinical and research interest in chronic heart failure. I started as a Consultant Cardiologist at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust in April 2004.

Whilst I have a broad interest in all aspects of general adult cardiology including diagnostic catheterization, pacing, echo (transthoracic and transoesophageal), my sub-specialty interest remains the management of patients with heart failure.

I am interested in medical education and chair the cardiology session at regular national CPD meetings for general medical consultants and SpRs. I was co-organiser of the UKs first national Cardio-Renal Conference in 2006. I have recently edited a cardiology text book "Specialist Training in Cardiology" which was Highly Commended in the 2006 BMA Medical Book Competition.
