I originally trained as a doctor at Bristol University and have gone on to train in some of the premiere centres for infectious diseases, tropical medicine and clinical microbiology in the UK and around the world.
I worked and was awarded an MD for my research at the world famous London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. I went on to be appointed as a consultant at Flinders University Hospital, Australia. My experience has also included three years in Ethiopia and Nepal. I have a strong research background initially running public health programmes in HIV in Africa for the Department for International Development (DFID), then carrying out international clinical trials in mycobacterial diseases. I went on to work in Birmingham and Manchester before returning to make my home back in Bristol. I have been appointed as a consultant in the NHS and have worked with the Health Protection Agency in the south west on their TB programme. Currently,I am involved in research into Hepatitis C with the University of Bristol and am an honorary consultant at the BRI in Infectious Diseases & Viral Hepatitis.
In addition to general infectious diseases, I have a particular interest in tropical diseases and infections in returning travellers, chronic infections including tuberculosis, HIV and viral hepatitis.
I run the Post Travel Clinic here at Spire Bristol Hospital. This is a clinic for patients returning from travelling and may have symptoms or conditions contracted whilst away.
