I am a respiratory physician and my NHS practice is at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington this is Imperial College’s busy acute hospital.
I am the lead for Lung Cancer for Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. I run the Imperial Lung Cancer MDT and work closely with the wider thoracic and oncology teams. I am responsible for managing the lung cancer pathway for our patients from pre diagnosis, supporting patients through their diagnosis and then on to referral for treatment.
I also run the acute Non-Invasive Ventilation service and our Acute Respiratory Unit. I do acute general medical on calls and look after general medical and respiratory inpatients. I lead the tracheostomy ward round and manage inpatient tracheostomy weaning off ICU. My experience includes management of obesity hypoventilation and obstructive sleep apnoea with NIV and CPAP.
I also do a general respiratory clinic diagnosing and treat all general respiratory diseases and have a weekly bronchoscopy list.
I trained at St Mary’s Hospital, Imperial College School of Medicine in London and since qualifying I have also gained both an MSc in respiratory medicine and a research PhD in the field of post critical illness muscle wasting.
