About me

I qualified as a doctor from Southampton University in 1996 following which I moved around the country and to New Zealand in order to complete my physician specialty training. I moved to Bath in 2009 to take up a consultant post in the department of diabetes and endocrinology. We are an active unit that enjoys both teaching and working in the community. I run regular outpatient clinics at Paulton Hospital as well as at the Royal United Hospital. I have a particular clinical interest in investigation and management of pituitary problems and run a large combined clinic with our regional pituitary specialist surgeon, looking after people as they go through pituitary surgery, and supporting them for many years after their recovery.

I run the Bath NHS Weight Management Service with an interest in using new weight loss drugs and appetite suppressants to support people with their weight loss targets.
