About me

I am a Consultant Cardiologist based in Bath and Bristol with a specialist interest in complex angioplasty. I work full time at the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust and contribute to the 24/7 Emergency Service at the Bristol Heart Institute, which covers the regional heart attack service.

I provide a contemporary, evidence-based service, which is patient focused, to investigate and treat a broad range of cardiovascular problems. These include the investigations and management of chest pain, breathlessness, palpitations and fainting.

My sub-specialty is coronary intervention – using wires, balloons and stents to treat narrowing’s within coronary arteries. I am a high volume operator (I performed 487 cases in 2016 and 2017, compared to a national average of 248 cases) and perform the majority (91%) of my cases through the radial artery, which is proven to be the safest route. I have an excellent outcomes and safety record with a complication rate well below those predicted in the British Cardiovascular Interventional Society (BCIS) statistical model (1.4% actual vs. 2.6% predicted).

The most important person during any investigation or procedure is always the patient and I am strongly engaged with governance and quality improvement to ensure that teams work effectively to provide the best patient care possible.

I am closely involved in the education and training of Junior Doctors and contribute to a number of National and International research trials and registries. I sit on the National BCIS Council and I am a member of the BCIS Training and Education Group.

Outside work, I am a keen sportsman and cycle, ski and run regularly. I have run many half and full marathons, cycled London to Paris and participate in cycling Sportives every year. I have three children and spend as much time as possible supporting their busy social and sporting lives.
