I qualified from the University of Bristol in 2004. My early training included time spent working in Australia and I then completed my rheumatology training within the South West region.
I currently work as an NHS consultant for University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (Bristol Royal Infirmary and South Bristol Community Hospital) where I look after patients with all forms of rheumatic diseases. My specialist area of interest is osteoporosis and bone health. I lead the osteoporosis and rare bone service at University Hospitals Bristol and deliver a regular osteoporosis and rare bone clinic. I am highly experienced in the interpretation and reporting of DXA scans and vet all the reports in the Trust.
I am trained in the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound and use this regularly as part of my NHS practice.
In addition to my clinical practice I have an undergraduate education role in the University of Bristol Medical School and have held an Honorary senior clinical lecturer post since 2013.
I really care about looking after individuals with long-term conditions and supporting them through their patient journey. I am responsive to patient enquiries and am happy to provide further email support following the initial consultation, with an understanding that no two patient's journeys are the same and each individual patient has different requirements for their health and treatment.
Areas of interest
osteoporosis; rheumatoid arthritis; psoriatic arthritis; osteoarthritis; ankylosing spondylitis; polymyalgia rheumatica; SLE; connective tissue diseases; gout; fibromyalgia.
I also have significant clinical experience in musculoskeletal joint and soft tissue steroid injections.
Current NHS consultant posts held

I enjoy spending my free time with my wife and two young children aged 6 and 9. I am a sports enthusiast and continue to enjoy playing golf and football. In recent years I have developed a real interest in horticulture and love spending as much time as I can tending to our slowly evolving garden!
