About me

I am an experienced Consultant Physician specialising in older age medicine and osteoporosis. I consult on the basis of a sensible, comprehensive and detailed approach. Treatment recommendations are made, taking into account patient preferences.

Many years of excellent feedback from patients, families and referring General Practitioners.

I have 13+ years of experience as a Consultant Physician in the NHS and also for the same length of time in the private sector.

I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of London. I am also a Honorary Senior Lecturer of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Oxford. I have trained and mentored numerous batches of undergraduates and postgraduates. I am an examiner for the Royal college of Physicians for many years and including having been the Chair. I am an appraiser for senior doctors. I have been awarded multiple Clinical excellence awards (CEA awards) in the NHS for excellence in clinical care and medical leadership.
