As well as maintaining skills in general radiology I have subspecialized in imaging and intervention of the gastrointestinal system.

I currently practice as a Consultant in the Imaging department at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth and through Radiology Imaging Group have a thriving private practice at several sites throughout Hampshire.

I am registered with the General Medical Council and undergo regular audit and annual appraisal as part of the revalidation process. I keep up to date with all areas of radiology as well as my sub-specialty interest through continuing medical education. All these processes and safeguards enable me to provide the highest quality of service to my patients.
