I qualified in 2001 and have been working as a consultant chest physician at Frimley Park since 2011. In my NHS work I am the clinical lead for lung cancer, cystic fibrosis and patient safety. My passion is for respiratory medicine in general and I enjoy the challenge of teasing out the underlying cause for symptoms, arranging the most appropriate tests to confirm the diagnosis and then agreeing a treatment plan.
