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.
