I am a Consultant Cardiologist at Kingston and St George's Hospitals, with wide experience of general cardiology and specialist interest in heart failure, pacemaker and complex device therapy.
I graduated with distinction from Edinburgh University before completing my Foundation training in the west of Scotland.
I moved to London for core medical training at Charing Cross and Hammersmith hospitals before training in cardiology on the north west London rotation, including specialist fellowships in heart failure and devices at the Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals. I undertook my MD Research in to heart failure, devices and sleep apnoea with Professor Cowie and the heart failure service at the Royal Brompton hospital and Imperial College National Heart and Lung Institute.
I trained in all aspects of cardiology with sub-specialty interest in heart failure and device therapy. I implant pacemakers and perform angiography at Kingston hospital, and complex CRT and ICD devices at St George’s hospital, where I am on the electrophysiology on-call rota.
I have an interest in medical education and am a member of the BCS Education Committee. I am actively involved in research and am the UK Chief Investigator for the PERSEPOLIS study and a co-investigator for the IRONMAN and ISCOMAT studies. I have published in leading international journals and presented at international conferences.
