About me

I graduated from Leeds University in 1996. Following cardiology training across West Yorkshire I successfully obtained a British Heart Foundation Junior Research Fellowship and subsequently completed a 3-year period of research investigating the role of the autonomic nervous system in cardiovascular disease. I was awarded a PhD from the University of Leeds in 2003.

Before beginning life as a Consultant, I took the opportunity to enhance my training by accepting a Clinical Fellowship at the Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, Canada. There I received extensive training in advanced heart failure with a particular emphasis on complex device therapy including resynchronisation pacing and the use of implantable defibrillators.

In addition to my private practice I am an NHS Consultant and Clinical Lead for Cardiology at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
