I graduated from St.Mary’s Hospital, Imperial College London and trained in cardiology at Hammersmith Hospital. I undertook cardiac MRI training at Royal Brompton hospital in London, where I was later appointed as Locum Consultant before moving to the Essex Cardiothoracic Centre. I was the first cardiologist with specialist cardiac MRI training in the Essex region. I perform cardiac MRI and complex echocardiography to a high standard with international accreditation in both techniques.
I have extensive experience in treating patients with chest pain and ischaemic heart disease, palpitations, valve disease, heart failure and hypertension. I perform a wide range of diagnostic investigations including non-invasive stress tests (echo or MRI) and coronary angiograms.

Current NHS consultant posts held
Consultant Cardiologist, Essex Cardiothoracic Centre, Basildon University Hospital.
My research interest is cardiomyopathy (heart muscle disease) and I was awarded a BHF Clinical Research Fellowship in 2009, culminating in the award of a PhD degree. The research project produced several papers and over 30 abstracts. I have presented at major international cardiology conferences in Europe and North America.
Outside of work I love sport and am a keen runner, hoping to improve on one sub-4hr marathon. My other interests include photography and travel.
Married with 2 daughters and 1 son.
