Professional profile

I qualified from medical school in London. Following my junior doctor years in London I spent two years training in general and interventional cardiology at Papworth hospital, Cambridge. Following this I spent further periods of training in Southampton and Bristol and finally spent a year overseas in Melbourne, Australia where I completed a fellowship in interventional cardiology at the world renowned Monash Heart Centre.

I was appointed to my current post as a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at the Sunderland Royal Hospital in 2014 and have a busy NHS practice in all areas of general and interventional cardiology. I perform a large volume of complex procedures including coronary angiography, coronary angioplasty/stenting (PCI), transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography and interventions for structural heart disease.

In addition to my clinical practice, I have keen research interests in both clinical trials and the investigation of the underlying mechanisms of heart attacks. I was awarded my postgraduate research degree in 2010 from the University of Bristol and have continued to initiate and maintain my research interests.


Clinical Interests


Angina and coronary artery disease, complex coronary angioplasty (PCI) procedures, valvular heart disease, hypertension, palpitations and blackouts.
