About me

I trained at Edinburgh University Medical School and had junior doctor appointments in Edinburgh, Leeds and London. I was appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist in 1997 at Southend and London Chest Hospitals. In 2007 I became the Lead Cardiologist for the newly opened Essex Cardio-thoracic Centre (CTC), which I had helped to plan and develop, and returned to a full time clinical post in 2011 at Southend Hospital and the Essex CTC. I have received comprehensive training in all aspects of adult general cardiology with a sub-specialty interest in coronary intervention (angioplasty). I was responsible for developing rotablation services at the CTC and more recently led the development of angioplasty for chronically totally occluded coronary arteries (CTO). I currently have a full time clinical commitment in adult cardiology which includes diagnostic cardiac catheterisation, coronary angioplasty (including complex PCI - rotablation, left main stenting, CTO angioplasty), as well as implantation of permanent pacemakers.
I have an NHS practice at Southend Hospital (angiograms, pacemakers and out-patient clinic_ and also provide a full commitment to the on-call and in-patient service at the Essex Cardio-thoracic Centre. I also contribute to the research activities within the Cardiology Department at the Essex CTC, in particular, catheter lab based projects. I have been, and continue to be, invited to participate on faculty at various national and international meetings, mostly related to complex coronary intervention.

Areas of interest

Interventional cardiology (coronary angioplasty with stent deployment; Complex coronary angioplasty including rotablation, angioplasty for chronic total occlusions and left main stem angioplasty); The management of acute coronary syndromes (myocardial infarction, heart attack); Permanent pacing for bradyarrhythmias and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation; General adult cardiology including the management of coronary artery disease; Atrial fibrillation and arrhythmias; Heart failure; Cardiomyopathies; Preventative cardiology.
The management of patients with presumed cardiac symptoms such as chest pain, breathlessness, palpitation, ankle swelling.
I also have an active role in a number of research studies in Cardiology at the Essex Cardio-thoracic Centre.
