Professional profile

I have been a consultant cardiologist since 2015 with sub-specialist interest and expertise in ultrasound tests of the heart (echocardiography) and valvular heart disease. These clinical interests have led to work for national and international societies for developing clinical standards, accreditation schemes and promoting high-quality education for all healthcare professionals with an interest in cardiology.

I specialise in all forms of echocardiographic testing, including stress, transoesophageal, 3D and contrast echocardiography. I also have sub-specialist expertise in all forms of heart valve disease, including seeing patients with previous heart valve repair or replacement surgery.

To date I have performed over 2,500 stress echocardiograms, over 1,000 transoesophageal echocardiograms and over 5,000 transthoracic echocardiograms across both my NHS and private practice.

In addition to my clinical work, I am proud to undertake work for national cardiovascular societies to improve education of healthcare professionals and thus aim to improve patient care. I am a member of the Education Committee for the British Society of Echocardiography and have also been heavily involved in the establishment of the accreditation scheme in Stress Echocardiography from the BSE. I have served on the Council of the British Heart Valve Society since 2012 and am currently the Chair of the Program Committee.

I am the Clinical Lead for the recently established Wessex Heart Valve Clinic at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust.
