Professional profile

I am a Consultant Respiratory Physician with specific clinical interests in the treatment of patients with asthma (and related allergic disorders), infection and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. I also see many patients with general respiratory diseases as part of my practice, including undiagnosed respiratory symptoms and suspected lung cancers.

I am the lead clinician for airways diseases in Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, and I have developed services for patients with such chronic disorders. My main research work has been on the influence of the environment on virus related exacerbations of asthma, and in particular the link between infection, air pollution and asthma.

I have written local guidelines in the management of asthma and COPD, am a member of the national British Thoracic Society Research Committee to promote research into respiratory diseases and have been an international advisor to the World Health Organisation and an author on the effects of the environment on respiratory infections.

I lead a local airways strategy group aimed at improving the care of patients with airways diseases by promoting good practice, education and a multi-disciplinary approach to managing respiratory diseases across the district.
