About me

I am a General Consultant Cardiologist with special interest in cardiac pacemaker devices and heart failure. I was appointed Consultant Cardiologist at King George Hospital - Barking, Havering Redbridge University Hospitals’ NHS Trust (BHRUT) in 2012 and am their Clinical Lead for Heart Rhythm. I became an Honorary Consultant at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London in 2013. I implant pacemakers, defibrillators and biventricular devices at the largest state-of-the-art unit in the UK- Barts Heart Centre.

My NHS clinics are held at King George Hospital, Essex and I provide oncall support to Queens Hospital. I undertake Private Practice at Spire London East Hospital on Saturday mornings.

In 2017, I received Consultant Excellence Award for delivering high quality patient focused services to BHRUT and my Quality Improvement Project on ICD deactivation was a national finalist in Patient Safety Awards. I also received a local Trust Prize for Best Audit in 2015.

I graduated from United Medical and Dental School of Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospital, University of London in 1997 (now called GKT) and completed my cardiology training at the London Deanery in leading Teaching Hospitals’ in South East England including: St Thomas’ Hospital, King’s College Hospital, St George’s Hospital, London and Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton.

I have successfully led service improvements in heart failure diagnosis and chest pain assessment at BHRUT and have written several policy documents on improving patient safety and care. I continue to be involved in quality improvement projects and the regular supervision, training and education of junior doctors. I have published widely in several peer reviewed journals and my work regularly receives citations- find my online profile page on Researchgate for more information

I firmly believe in putting my patients needs first and always strive to offer the best possible care and experience.Patient feedback is very important to me. You can read or leave a patient review on my profile page using the following link:
