I am currently involved in multi-centre trials tracking patients with Parkinson's disease. I am also researching the outcomes of minor arrhythmias detected in routine tests. I have published extensively on stroke. I have an interest in improving quality of care for hospitalised patients and conducting numerous projects in detecting delirium, improving daily assessment by junior doctors and raising the standards of prescribing.
