I qualified from the Medical School in Cardiff in 1989. Since then I have done general medical training in a number of hospitals in Central London. I became a member of the Royal College of Physicians in 1992 and a fellow of the Royal College in 2005. My medical training was followed by neurology posts in many of the major neuroscience centres in London including the Hammersmith Hospital, the National Hospital for Neurology, the Royal Free Hospital and King’s College Hospital. I was appointed to the GMC specialist register for neurology in 1999. I have also done neurological research training at the Hammersmith Hospital and in the National Institutes of Health in the United States. I have been awarded a PhD in Clinical Neurosciences by Imperial College. I have published extensively in a number of important areas in neurology and clinical neurosciences.
I was appointed as consultant neurologist to King’s College Hospital in 2000 and am one of the very few neurologists in London whose NHS work is based full time at the neuroscience centre. I have also been the lead clinician for the neurology department from 2001 to 2007. In September 2006 I organised the Association of British Neurologists meeting on behalf of King’s.
I have a broad experience of neurological disease with particular interest in cerebrovascular disease and movement disorders.
I have been working at Shirley Oaks hospital for the last seven years. I am keen to provide a responsive and high quality clinical service for neurological patients.
