I qualified from St Thomas Hospital in 1992 where I was awarded a BSc in physiology and MB BS with double Honours. After house jobs at St Thomas and Greenwich, I worked at The Hammersmith as a medical SHO, Royal Brompton as an ITU/respiratory SHO, London Chest as a cardiology SHO and Guy’s as a renal SHO. I became a member of the Royal College of Physicians in February 1995 and entered registrar training in cardiology in May 1995. I completed a registrar rotation at St Mary’s, Hillingdon and Royal Brompton before spending 2 years in full time research. My training in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) took place at the Royal Brompton Hospital and this is my major interest but I see and treat patients with every variety of cardiac disease.

Current NHS consultant posts held
I have worked since 2004 as a consultant in Portsmouth where I set up the coronary angioplasty and stenting programme. This service has now developed into the largest 24/7 heart attack centre along the South Coast treating over 400 patients with ST elevation heart attacks per annum. My practice includes all aspects of general cardiology as well as my specialist interest in angioplasty. I hold a level 8 clinical excellence award and I am the clinical director of our department.
I was awarded a BHF Research Fellowship in 1998. My MD research thesis involved excitation-contraction coupling in cardiac myocytes and was performed at the National Heart & Lung Institute, Imperial College.
My current research interests include the evaluation of new intracoronary stents and the use of anti-thrombotic and lipid lowering drugs in patients with acute coronary syndrome.
I am married with 2 daughters and 2 Labradors, I live in Hampshire and enjoy skiing, rugby and dog walks. I have sailed the Atlantic and participated in yacht racing in many parts of the world.
I was awarded a Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training in Cardiology and General Internal Medicine in 2002. I am a member of the British Cardiovascular Society and the British Cardiovascular Intervention Society. I was elected a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 2012.
