Personal profile

After qualifying from Kings College Hospital in 1991, I completed House jobs and became a member of the Royal College of Physicians in 1994. I proceeded with my specialist training, gaining my specialist qualification in cardiology by 2002. I spent three years at the Queens Hospital in Burton upon Trent before moving on to the QEQM Hospital in Margate. I was invited to be a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in July 2008. I received my MD in 2009.

Although working as a general cardiologist I have a special interest in device therapy and specifically devices for the treatment of life threatening cardiac arrhythmias (Implantable cardioverter defibrillator) and heart failure (Cardiac resynchronisation therapy). I have level II accreditation in cardiovascular CT enabling independent performance & reporting of cardiac CT. I am a member of the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography.
