I am a Consultant Cardiologist working in the Oxford Heart Centre at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.
I see private patients with heart problems at the Manor Hospital Oxford, as well as at the John Radcliffe Hospital.
I particularly specialise in looking after patients with heart failure, and in the implantation of pacemakers and related devices (implantable defibrillators and cardiac resynchronisation therapy). I see patients with all cardiac conditions.
If you have breathlessness, leg swelling, palpitations (awareness of an abnormal heart beat), blackouts or collapse, or chest pain then I can help you.
Areas of interest
Heart Failure; Heart Rhythm problems; slow heartbeat (bradycardia); Blackouts

My main research interest to date has been in site selection for the left ventricular lead for cardiac resynchronisation therapy.
I am currently a co-investigator on trials of the CardioMEMS pulmonary artery pressure sensor and of left ventricular wireless endocardial pacing.
In addition, I am on the steering committee of a trial on the use of troponin blood tests in patients with chest pain
