I am an established rheumatology consultant having been a consultant in Leicester since 2006.
I graduated from Nottingham University in 1995 and completed house officer jobs in Nottingham and Taunton before taking the opportunity to work in Australia for a year in A and E, ITU and paediatrics.
On returning to the UK I completed postgraduate training in general medicine in Nottingham and Leicester then rheumatology specialist training in Stoke, Nottingham and Leicester before becoming a consultant in Leicester in 2006.
I was head of service for rheumatology in Leicester for over 6 years before resigning after the 1st covid pandemic to spend more time with my family.
I have many publications in peer review journals and I am a clinical teacher at Leicester University Medical School as well as an educational supervisor to postgraduate doctors.
