I have been a Consultant Physician and Cardiologist for 30 years at Ashford & St Peter's Hospitals NHS Trust. I have practised at The Runnymede and The Princess Margaret Hospital during this period.
During my career I have sat on National Guideline Committees and the Education Committee of the Royal College of Physicians. I have been the Chairman of the National Association of Clinical Tutors representing all Clinical Tutors and Directors of Postgraduate Medical Education in the UK. I also sat on a government committee called SCOPME which gave advice to the Department of Health about postgraduate medical education.
I was the first Medical Director of Ashford Hospital and more recently have been the Divisional Director for Acute Medicine and Emergency Services at the Trust.
I managed undergraduate medicine at the Trust for over 20 years.
Areas of interest
I have been a consultant cardiologist for over 30 years and have a wide experience in all aspects of general cardiology including the management of coronary heart disease, heart failure, changes in heart rhythm and hypertension. I have also practised in general internal medicine.
Current NHS consultant posts held

I have been involved in multiple trials over my career and at present spend a day a week supporting research work at the Trust.
Numerous awards as best teacher in the Trust from St George's Medical School
Courses offered to GPs
I am willing to give free courses on a wide variety of cardiological topics.
My work is clinically based at present in the sense that I do not perform any procedures apart from cardioversion.
