I have more than 10 years experience as a consultant cardiologist, treating the full range of adult cardiological conditions including arrhythmias, valvular disease, coronary artery disease and heart failure.
I specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of heart artery problems by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), with excellent outcomes (available from the British Cardiovascular Intervention Society website).
I am the research lead for cardiology in Norwich, participating in numerous multi-centre trials, and original research looking at the molecular mechanisms of heart attacks.
I have written a text book on ultrasound examination of the heart (echocardiography) which is widely used by trainees in the UK and abroad.

Data for 2017 to date are yet to be made publicly available. The most recent available data is 2014 - 2016: during this period I undertook 813 PCI procedures (65% for acute coronary syndromes). The 30 day mortality rate was 1.07% (predicted 1.97%), indicating excellent outcomes. 94% of procedures were undertaken via the wrist artery.
