About me

I was one of only fourteen out of a class of 240 to be awarded an MB, ChB with honours in the University of Manchester in 1976. As an undergraduate I won university Bursary.
My post graduate training in cardiology in the North West of England and completed an MD research degree.
I have published widely in the field of cardiology with several publications related to atrial fibrillation, cardiac failure, cardiac pacing and coronary anomalies.
I have a low risk practice. I have received several letters of appreciation and even a Poem written and published about me by one of my patients.

I was appointed to my first consultant post at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast in 1988.
I am an experienced consultant cardiologist specialising in the assessment and management of:
Angina,
Breathlessness,
Heart failure,
Dizziness, funny turns, blackouts and palpitations.
Valvular heart disease.
I am also highly experienced in the implantation and management of cardiac pacemakers and implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICDs).
My priority is to provide a rapid diagnosis of cardiac symptoms and formulate a personalised treatment plan to ensure the highest standard of care.
I practice at the Beaumont Hospital Bolton and Alexandra Hospital Cheadle Manchester, United Kingdom.
Clinical Interests:
Palpitation.
Inappropriate awareness of one’s heart beat. Causes include:
Atrial fibrillation
Commonest cause of abnormal heart beat that could lead to a stroke.
Breathlessness.
A feeling of inability to get sufficient air intake for one’s requirement.
Funny Turns, Dizziness and Blackout
Heart Failure
Impaired heart pump action that could be cause breathlessness. Can be associated with other heart problems including angina.

a. Echocardiogram
Ultrasound assessment of heart function; heart wall contractility and valve function.
b. Coronary angiography.
Dye test imaging of the coronary arteries to look for narrowing that could cause reduce heart function.

Hypertension/Blood Pressure
Asymptomatic early but can be a major risk factor for both heart disease and stroke.
Chest Pain
Can be due to coronary artery disease. Other causes include blood clot in the lungs, pericarditis (inflammation around the heart), chest infection and chest wall origin. Can be a major cause of concern to most people.

Special Clinical Interests:
Valvular heart disease diagnosis and management.
Cardiac catherization including coronary angiography.
Pacemaker and Implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) implantation,
Loop recorder implantation - diagnosis of blackouts.
Funny Turns, Dizziness and Blackout.

Resting ECG
An ECG can detect changes in heart rhythm and abnormalities in the signals themselves. The test can be used to assess if you have risk of a heart attack or detect evidence of a previous heart attack. Assessing the risk of you having a heart attack should be part of any health assessment.

PALPITATIONS ASSESSMENT.
Holter Monitor
ECG monitoring is a way of measuring your heart's electrical activity and rhythm, to track changes over a period of time - typically 24 or 48 hours. Electrodes are connected to a small recording device, which you wear on a belt around your waist.

Cardio memo
ECG cardiomemo recorders are, about the size of a mobile phone, that record your
heart's activity. They are useful for patients who have intermittent infrequent symptoms.
Tilt Test.
Assessment of underlying changes in blood pressure and heart rate as a cause of funny turns to allow tailored management of each patient.

MAAGEMENT OF AND PREVENTION OF FUNNY TURNS AND BLACKOUT.
Depending on the finding of these tests I may advise the need for one of the treatments below after a full discussion with you about the possible benefit for one of the treatments below:
1. Increased Fluid and salt intake.
2. Pacemaker Implantation.
3. Cardiac Resynchronisation with or without an Implantable Defibrillator.
4. Implantable Defibrillator.
