I am a dedicated and enthusiastic fee-assured cardiologist working as an Interventional Cardiology Consultant at the Gloucester Royal Hospital, Gloucester, United Kingdom. I completed my UK Certification of Completion of Training (CCT) in Interventional Cardiology in August 2013 and performed over 2,500 diagnostic and 1,000 first operator interventional cardiac catheterisations (predominantly trans-radial). I also have first operator training in IVUS, OCT, FFR (pressure wire) and Rotablation techniques.
I have completed a senior clinical fellowship at King’s College Hospital London in Interventional Cardiology, gaining new experiences and techniques in advanced interventional and structural cardiology. From August 2013 until February 2015, I worked as a senior fellow in interventional cardiology at the Austin Hospital, Melbourne Australia. During this time, I not only gained PCI expertise, but was also heavily involved with several quality improvement projects, including the TAVI programme at the Austin Hospital.
I have a major interest in utilising my Cardiology experience and knowledge for the delivery of patient focused care and promoting staff education through dedicated teaching sessions and am very excited by the additional future opportunities in Interventional Cardiology.
I have always had a keen interest in competitive sport. I was Captain of the Queen’s University Belfast Rowing Club in 2000, culminating in two quarterfinal Henley Regatta placings and selection for the Commonwealth Rowing Championships 2002, Nottingham UK. I have also coached both Queen’s Rowing Club and the King’s College University Rowing club in his spare time. I have competed in both triathlon and long distance running events, running the London Marathon in 2010 for charity. More recently in Australia I took part in several long (350km) distance charity road cycling events. I also organised a local cycling event for a personal charity and ran the Cheltenham Half Marathon.

I have achieved a Masters degree (MD) in 2008 in the field of ECG interpretation and diagnostics- devising my own algorithm to improve MI diagnosis. This work was published and presented at international meetings, winning the prestigious Computers in Cardiology award for best research in 2009.
More recently as I have undertaken further involvement with interventional procedures I have published as first author on topics such as SCAD (Sudden Coronary Artery Dissection) and FFR (Pressure wire assessment of the coronary arteries).
Just this year I have been heavily involved in the development of a new protocol for assessment and triage of patients in Gloucester Emergency Department., This work is to be presented this year at the British Cardiac Society and has led to the recruitment of several new nurses to support this service.
Obviously family life is an important factor in my life, with my first daughter born in 2016.
My main interests include outdoor sports- cycling several long distant events for charity, running both London Marathon and most recently Cheltenham half marathon and previously representing Northern Ireland in the Commonwealth Games in rowing. My focus this year is to return to the competitive stage in triathlon.
