I am a Consultant Haematologist working in the Worcestershire Acute NHS Trust since July 2002. I am currently the Consultant Lead for Haematology and Cancer services.

I treat all General Haematology including Haemato-oncology, Thrombosis-Haemostasis and Red cell disorders. I have a specialist interest in Myeloma and Lymphomas of all grades and type. I treat acute and chronic Leukaemias, with a particular interest in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia, as well as treatment and investigations in Thrombotic disorders, especially Thrombophilic disorders. I have a keen interest in investigations into the management of Anaemias of different nature, Myeloproliferative disorders and Myelodysplastic syndromes, including novel treatment options.

From 2009, I have been the Clinical Director for Haematology & Oncology for the Worcestershire Acute NHS Trust. This includes all three sites: Worcestershire Royal Hospital, Alexandra Hospital and Kidderminster Treatment Centre. Being the senior Haematologist, I am in charge of Clinical Haematology for the Worcestershire County, leading the seven member Haematology consultant team.

I am the current lead for countywide anticoagulation and set up both the secondary care new Anticoagulation service including Warfarin dosing and the DVT clinics. I am Deputy Chair for the Trust-wide Thrombosis committee and actively involved in the Thromboprophylaxis program and risk assessment for the Acute Trust and community hospitals for the Worcestershire PCT.

I am currently Senior Lecturer in Haematology at the University of Birmingham since 2005 and closely linked to the Cancer studies based at University of Birmingham. I actively participate in research activities linked with University of Birmingham in Myeloma, Lymphoma, Leukaemia and myeloproliferative disorder. As an active member of the Worcestershire Oncology Project team since 2010, I had active involvement in the restructuring of the cancer network in Worcestershire.

I have close links with Cure Leukaemia Charity (West Midlands) and involved in fund raising activities. I am a signatory for charities like Stephen Hayden memorial charity and funds or research nurses. I also set up the Roger Bradley memorial charity for our Haematology unit in Worcestershire and actively fundraised for the Worcestershire Breast Cancer unit to be based at Worcestershire Royal Hospital.
