About me

I live in Chelmsford with my wife, who is a secondary school teacher, and our two children, who attend local schools.
I believe that it is important to give back to society, as one receives. I actively support the fund-raising activities of my son’s school, KEGS, and of Farleigh Hospice, which provides care to people with life-limiting illnesses across mid-Essex. I am also treasurer for our village residents group.
I like to keep fit by playing badminton, cycling, jogging, swimming and, more recently, dancing! My other interests include gastronomy, travel, music, movies and socialising with friends and family. I am an avid reader and a member of the BBC Radio 2 Book Club. In 2017 I was delighted to appear on Simon Mayo’s Drivetime Show to review Paula Hawkins’ novel ‘Into the Water’.
In our multi-cultural society, doctors often treat patients whose first language is not English. I am fortunate that, besides English, I am fluent in French and eight Indian languages (Hindi/Urdu, Marathi, Konkani, Kannada, Tamil, Gujarati, Malayalam, Tulu). This enables me to communicate effectively with patients from various cultural backgrounds, win their confidence and put them on the road to recovery.
