I am a Consultant Rheumatologist. I trained in Ireland and Canada. I worked as a Consultant in Toronto, Canada for several years before returning to work in the UK as a Consultant.
I became a Rheumatologist as I enjoy getting to know my patients and helping them over the course of their condition. I am involved in research having trained as a Clinical Epidemiologist in Canada to understand how diseases affect people with arthritis.
