About me

Professional Profile -

I completed undergraduate medical training in Aberdeen, Scotland before training as a Cardiologist based in North-West London. During this period I worked at Imperial College NHS Trust and The Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS trust. Prior to my appointment as a consultant in the UK, I spent two years completing international fellowships focused on Complex Cardiac Device Implantation and on Coronary Artery Intervention. These were based in the Wellington and Waikato regions of New Zealand.

I specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease, in the management of heart failure and in the implantation of cardiac devices including pacemakers, defibrillators and cardiac resynchronisation devices. I have a history of research in the field and was previously recognised as national Scientific investigator of the Year, by the British Society of Echocardiography.

I enjoy seeing patients with all routine cardiac complaints or those who are experiencing suspected cardiac symptoms such as chest pain, palpitations, ankle swelling, breathlessness, dizziness or faints. I am also accredited in general internal medicine and am able to provide a medical overview for patients whom have both cardiac and general medical conditions.

Personal Profile -

Having moved to the East Midlands in 2015 I live in a village in the Peak District with my wife and three children. I have a son and non-identical twin girls.

In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors and walking in particular. I have previously spent time exploring the mountains of Scotland, Wales, the Alps and the Himalayas. I recently learnt to sail and am very keen to do more of this in future. I also have a developing interest in building restoration and conservation.
