About me

I have been an NHS consultant since 2009, practicing in all aspect of adult respiratory and sleep medicine. I provide a prompt, friendly and efficient out and inpatient service. I have developed a web based assessment tool for my insomnia clinic, which I commenced in 2012. This clinic, the only one of its sort for miles around, involves completion of an online sleep diary and insomnia questionnaires, followed by a thorough outpatient assessment and then 6 x 45 minute CBTI (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia) sessions with our very experienced psychologist.
I am an active member of the British Thoracic Society, I am treasurer and executive committee member of the British Sleep Society. I am also members of the European Sleep Research Society and the American Academy Sleep Medicine. I am one of relatively few qualified 'Somnologists' (sleep specialists) within the UK.
