About me

I am an experienced senior NHS consultant cardiologist with over 30 years of experience, working at the Royal Free Hospital and at UCL. I graduated from Guy's Hospital Medical School and was awarded a MRC Scholarship to study for a BSc Honours degree in Pharmacology. I trained in cardiology in major London teaching hospitals and in the USA. I was awarded my MD research degree from the University of London on "Exercise testing after myocardial infarction". I am a consultant cardiologist at the Royal Free Hospital, specialising in pulmonary hypertension. I have particular experience and expertise in evaluating and managing patients with undiagnosed breathlessness, chest pain, palpitation, dizzy turns, loss of consciousness, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

I have published over 100 papers and abstracts, and am the author or editor of 13 books written for patients, GPs and specialists. I am a member of the FLARRE research group at UCL where I am an Honorary Associate Professor in the Division of Medicine. I am the founder and chairman of the St Paul's School Medical Conference for state school and academy students.

My private fees have been agreed with BUPA and are within the BUPA rates.

Areas of interest

I have expertise in investigating and treating chest pain, high blood pressure, breathlessness, palpitations, dizzy turns, loss of consciousness, prevention of heart disease, (high cholesterol, exercise, management of stress, and diet). I am consulted for second opinions to see whether medical treatment or angioplasty or coronary artery bypass surgery is the most appropriate treatment for coronary heart disease, and for valve problems.
