I trained at United Medical and Dental School of Guy's and St Thomas's Hospitals, London gaining a BSc in Psychology, before graduating with Honours in 2000. After completing my general medical training in East London, I undertook specialist training at the Kent and Sussex, Lewisham, St. Thomas' and Conquest Hospitals.
During my time at St.Thomas' I spent three years working in the internationally renown Sleep Disorders Centre and the Lane Fox Unit. I carried out innovative research into the connection between OSA and severe Diabetic Retinopathy, and also into the physiology of breathing in the very obese.
I am dual accredited in General (Internal ) Medicine and Respiratory Medicine. I am currently on the sleep section committee of the Royal Society of Medicine. In addition to the diagnosis and treatment of respiratory and sleep disorders, I am also interested in screening for OSA in high risk patients.
I have for some time been frustrated with the patchy nature of services to treat Insomnia within this part of the UK. I have therefore joined forces with a local cognitive behavioral psychotherapist and has developed a state of the art evidence based course of treatment for Insomnia.

I am currently a full time Consultant in Respiratory, General and Sleep Medicine at the Conquest Hospital and am happy to receive referrals on all aspects of respiratory and sleep medicine.
