About me

I am a Consultant Medical Oncologist based at The University Hospital Birmingham NHS Trust. I obtained a BSc Honours in immunology and cell pathology from University College London, before graduating with a medical degree from St. Bartholomew’s Medical School in 2001. I then returned to the Midlands to complete my general medical and oncology training and took up post as Consultant Medical Oncologist in September 2011.

I actively treat lung, colorectal and liver cancer patients at the Heartlands, Good Hope and Solihull sites. I specialise in all forms of cancer drug treatments including chemotherapy, immuno-oncology, precision oncology and chemo-embolisation.

I have a large clinical trial portfolio and I am the UK Chief Investigator and Principle Investigator for national and international clinical trials. I am at the forefront of the clinical utility of liquid biopsy in managing lung and colorectal cancer patients and I have several studies underway in this context. I have numerous publications and regularly present at regional, national and international cancer meetings. I am on the BTOG Steering Committee and also sit on the advisory panel for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.

I am extremely passionate about cancer survivorship and have developed and led on health and wellbeing clinics, having a specialist interested in the benefits of exercise for cancer patients and survivors.

I aim to deliver cutting edge, individualised and evidence based cancer treatments for his patients whilst ensuring their health and wellbeing is also prioritised.
