I am a consultant cardiologist with specialist interest in percutaneous coronary intervention. I qualified at Liverpool University 1998 and most of my basic and higher medical training was in the north west. My specialist training in coronary intervention was at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital. I have a PhD in coronary microvascular function. I have worked as a consultant in the Morecambe bay area and have been appointed as a full time consultant in Lancashire Cardiac Centre. I have an interest intra coronary imaging and intra-coronary physiology and complex PCI.
