I am a Consultant Cardiologist at Spire Hartswood in Brentwood, Essex. I have been practicing at Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT) since 2021. I have worked as a Consultant since 2018.
I am trained in all aspects of adult cardiology with a special interest in heart failure and the implantation of pacemakers, especially biventricular and implantable cardioverter defibrillators. I qualified as a doctor from Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ London University in 2006. I entered specialist training in cardiology in 2012, where I rotated through a series of prestigious posts in London and Sussex, including advanced heart failure and cardiac transplantation at Harefield Hospital.
I treat patients with a variety of symptoms including chest pain, palpitations, breathlessness and blackouts. I organise and perform numerous investigations including ECGs, ambulatory ECGs, blood pressure monitoring, and echocardiograms. I am involved in the cardiac assessment of patients prior to anaesthesia and surgery.
I am committed to providing holistic, multidisciplinary and personalised care to all patients. I ensure my knowledge and clinical experience is maintained to a high standard through attendance at regional and international meetings.
I am passionate about medical education. I am both an educational and clinical supervisor for junior doctors. I have additional roles as the Consultant Lead for the Havering Heart Failure multidisciplinary team and the Specialty Lead for Clinical Audit and Quality improvement at Barking, Havering and Redbridge Hospitals NHS Trust.
