Personal profile

I have practiced widely in General Medicine in acute medical admissions, in-patient care and outpatients. I have extensive experience in thyroid disease and pituitary, adrenal and parathyroid disorders. In both management of type 1 and type 2 diabetes my clinical interests relate to the prevention, investigation and treatment of the microvascular and macrovascular complications.

I have an interest in metabolic medicine, and in particular a national reputation in the management of lipid disorders in the general population, in diabetes and in familial hypercholesterolaemia. I am vice-chair of a national obesity management programme.
