Professional profile

I qualified from Cambridge University and trained in cardiology in a variety of major cardiac centres in London, including the Royal Brompton Hospital, Hammersmith Hospital, Charing Cross Hospital, St Mary's Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital.

I obtained a PhD in cardiac electrophysiology from Imperial College.

I have been a consultant cardiologist since 2001 and I now lead the cardiology service in East Cheshire.

General diagnostic and therapeutic cardiology and management of cardiovascular risk factors. My role encompasses the entirety of general cardiology but with special expertise in percutaneous coronary intervention (angioplasty/stent), echocardiography and adult congenital heart disease.

I undertake approximately 150 percutaneous coronary intervention (angioplasty/stent) procedures per annum.

I am involved in training junior doctors in the North West of England through my role in Health Education England (NW). I contribute to the education of consultants throughout England and Wales through my role as an educational facilitator with the Royal College of Physicians
