I am a General Cardiologist in Chichester and am also the Clinical Lead for Heart Failure. I deal with all aspects of cardiology including coronary disease, heart failure, arrhythmias, atrial fibrillation, valve disease and cardiomyopathies. I also see patients for regulatory reasons such as DVLA exercise testing.
I am a Honorary Senior Lecturer for Kings College Medical School and I also teach medical students from Southampton and Brighton Medical Schools.
I have a strong interest in research and have been the Principal or Chief Investigator for all cardiology clinical trials based at Chichester for the past 12 years. I engage in both academic and commercial research and have received personal grant funding from NIHR. I have also been granted a patent for an invention. I have numerous publications in leading cardiology and general medical journals.
