Treatment restrictions due to coronavirus (COVID-19)

As part of our longstanding relationship, we are proud to be dedicating our resources to the NHS at this important time. As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. We are making every effort to talk to impacted patients and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Professional profile

I completed my post graduate training in Cardiff in 2000. I joined Southend University Hospital in 2004 after being a consultant Physician at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Norfolk for three and a half years.

I have wide experience and provide a comprehensive general and respiratory service. I lead the Asthma Services at Southend University Hospital and I represent South Essex as Lead Clinician for Mesothelioma at Essex Lung Cancer Network. I take a keen interest in teaching and am a member of the North East Thames Respiratory Specialist Registrar Training Committee and a member of British Thoracic Society / Royal College of Physicians Knowledge based assessment question setting group.

I welcome appropriate patients wishing to refer and pay for treatment themselves without the need for a GP's letter of referral.
