He has a special clinical interest in connective tissue disease (SLE/lupus, Sjogren's syndrome, myositis, scleroderma) and vasculitis and runs a weekly NHS clinic specifically for these conditions. As well as providing a thorough clinical assessment he also recognises the important of excellent patient communication and focuses heavily on patient centred care.
