About me

I have been a Consultant Cardiologist at the Royal United Hospital (RUH) Bath since 2004 and an associate lecturer at UWE, Bristol. I qualified in 1983 from India and achieved my MD in 1988. I completed my Cardiology training in Cardiff and have a Master’s degree in Medical Law from Cardiff Law School. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (UK) and a Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology.

I started the pulmonary hypertension service unit at RUH, a satellite service with the Royal Free Hospital, London. My specialty expertise is in echocardiography and I lead the echocardiographic services for the RUH. I have introduced new services such as dobutamine stress echocardiography and the use of 3D echocardiography. I initiated the use of micro-bubble testing for patent foramen ovale in patients with cryptogenic stroke.

I am also accredited by the 'British Society of Echocardiography' for adult Transthoracic Echocardiography and accredited by the 'European Association of Echocardiography' for adult Transoesophageal Echocardiography.

I am the senior author for the publication of Right Ventricular Dimensions published in the Journal of American Society of Echocardiography in 2012.

I played a large role in the training of registrars as well as newly appointed consultants in echocardiography and pulmonary hypertension. In addition to this, I have supervised a PhD student, conduct clinical trials, chair and teach at weekly departmental echo meetings, carry out large scale primary care audits on heart failure and organise pulmonary hypertension study days and GP study days. I was instrumental in implementing BNP testing in early detection of heart failure in primary care. I was the lead for Clinical Governance (CG), I held regular departmental CG meetings to look specifically at patient safety issues, complaints and mortality.

I have now been specifically appointed to Lead the Royal United Hospital, Heart Failure Services and these clinics with MDT meetings with primary care nurses are weekly run with the help of my Heart Failure Nurse from RUH. I implemented the heart failure referral pathway with my colleague from Biochemistry so that patients are seen as quick as possible. My motto for GPs have been 'don't delay but treat today' if they suspect heart failure.
