I was born in Leamington Spa, educated in South Warwickshire and completed my initial medical degree in Bristol University. I then completed my General Medical training in the South West and my higher specialist rheumatology training in Birmingham and the West Midlands.
I have been a Consultant Rheumatologist at Solihull Hospital, Little Aston and Parkway Hospitals since 2010 and see patients with all rheumatological problems including rheumatoid arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, connective tissue diseases, soft tissue problems such as bursitis and tendonitis and osteoarthritis. I also run a multidisciplinary clinic for Ankylosing Spondylitis (Axial Spondyloarthritis) patients as part of my NHS practice at Solihull Hospital with the Physiotherapy team.
I have been Principal Investigator in several clinical trials in the fields of rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and psoriatic arthritis based in the Clinical Trials unit at Solihull Hospital.
I am Clinical Governance lead for the Rheumatology Directorate and have previously been a member of the West Midlands Rheumatology Services and Training committee which co-ordinates higher specialist Rheumatology training.
