I have many year's experience as a consultant cardiologist, treating the full range of adult cardiological conditions including arrhythmias, valvular disease, coronary artery disease and heart failure.
I specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of heart artery problems by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), with excellent outcomes (available from the British Cardiovascular Intervention Society website).
I am the research lead for cardiology in Norwich, participating in numerous multi-centre trials, and original research looking at the molecular mechanisms of heart attacks.
I have written a text book on ultrasound examination of the heart (echocardiography) which is widely used by trainees in the UK and abroad.

During 2012 - 2014 I undertook 703 PCI procedures (65% for acute coronary syndromes). The 30 day mortality rate was 0.74% (predicted 95% upper confidence limit, 2.16%), indicating excellent outcomes. 85% of procedures were undertaken via the radial artery.
Data for 2015 onwards is yet to be made publicly available.
