I graduated from St.Mary’s Hospital, Imperial College London and trained in cardiology at Hammersmith Hospital. I undertook cardiac MRI training at Royal Brompton hospital in London, where I was later appointed as Locum Consultant before moving to the Essex Cardiothoracic Centre. I was the first cardiologist with specialist cardiac MRI training in the Essex region. I perform cardiac MRI and complex echocardiography to a high standard with international accreditation in both techniques.
I have extensive experience in treating patients with chest pain and ischaemic heart disease, palpitations, valve disease, heart failure and hypertension. I perform a wide range of diagnostic investigations including non-invasive stress tests (echo or MRI) and invasive coronary angiograms.
Areas of interest
General adult cardiology; angina; heart failure; palpitations; atrial fibrillation (AF); valve disease; cardiomyopathy; hypertension; lipid management; cardiovascular risk
Current NHS consultant posts held
Consultant Cardiologist, Essex Cardiothoracic Centre, Basildon University Hospital.
My research interest is cardiomyopathy (heart muscle disease) and I was awarded a BHF Clinical Research Fellowship, culminating in the award of a PhD degree. The research project produced several papers and over 30 abstracts. I have presented at major international cardiology conferences in Europe and North America.
Outside of work I love sport and am a keen runner, hoping to improve on one sub-4hr marathon. My other interests include photography and travel.
Married with 2 daughters and 1 son.
