I am actively involved in Clinical trials in thalassaemia and sickle cell disease and have an academic interest in iron overload.
My team and I run the largest service for thalassaemia in the Uk.
I am a mum of 5 children/young adults and hence enjoy being a all purpose chef and taxi driver in my second job!
Things that make me happy apart from my family are reading ( passionate about fantasy/ young adult/mystery and action/adventure)
Watching my son play cricket ( when his leg does not hurt!)
(Additional) Languages spoken
- Panjabi, Punjabi - Native or bilingual
- Urdu - Native or bilingual
- Hindi - Conversational
I am actively involved in research and hence we ( my team and I ) have lots of publications on outcomes in thalassaemia syndromes
Courses offered to GPs
I lecture at meetings globally on thalassaemia syndromes and involved in lots of charity work/free clinics for patients in resource challenged countries looking after large volumes of patients with haemoglobiopathies.
we do teaching courses for GPs via Whittington health for our local GPs but happy to teach anytime!
