I am both a general cardiologist and am a specialist in coronary intervention ("angioplasty and stenting") and structural heart disease. I trained in cardiology in Australia and the UK and my advanced interventional training was undertaken in New Zealand.
I have been a consultant cardiologist at Ipswich and Papworth since 2006. I work both in Ipswich, where I am the lead cardiologist for the Ipswich Heart Centre, and at Papworth Hospital, Cambridgeshire. I am available for private consultations at the Nuffield Health Ipswich Hospital on Thursday afternoon and evening.
Current NHS consultant posts held

Ischaemic heart disease
I live in Suffolk with my family, and enjoy the active outdoor lifestyle that the sunny county enables, including middle and long-distance running and, occasionally, golf. I play the guitar badly but enjoy inflicting this on my children and wife.
