About me

I am a consultant physician who specialises in respiratory, general and intensive care medicine.

I have extensive experience in all aspects of general respiratory disease, but have particular interests in interstitial lung disease and respiratory failure which includes the investigation and diagnostic workup of patients with cough, shortness of breath and difficulty in breathing.

I am also accredited and dual-qualified in intensive care medicine which involves caring for patients after major/complex surgery and those who are critically unwell.

I have conducted PhD level research at Imperial College London focusing on critical illness associated muscle wasting and also have interests in long-term effects of critical illness.

Clinical Interests:
- Acute and chronic respiratory failure
- Acute respiratory and high dependency care
- Intensive care and advanced supportive care
- Tracheostomy and post intensive care unit care and weaning
- All general respiratory problems – particularly interstitial lung diseases
- Diagnostic bronchoscopy
- Pleural disease including diagnostic and interventional procedures
- Lung function reporting
- Pre-operative optimisation of respiratory patients
- Post-operative management of medical conditions
- Cough, breathlessness and difficulty in breathing
