Personal profile

I qualified from St George’s in London in 1987 with a 1st Class Honours BSc, and several undergraduate prizes. Following qualification I gained broad experience in general medicine before specialising in neurology. 

I completed an MD in neurology at Imperial College before training in neurology at Cambridge, Norwich, and Queen Square London. I was appointed consultant neurologist to the Royal Preston Hospital in 1999; as one of the senior neurologists there I have almost 20 years experience, and am comfortable in dealing with all aspects of neurological disease including headache, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy/blackouts, dementia, MS and peripheral nerve/muscle disease. My particular interest is in neurological disease of the eye (neuro-ophthalmology).

I pride myself on being extremely thorough in history taking and examination, and place great emphasis on excellent communication with my patients. Although I have a strong academic background, I now prioritise my work as a clinical neurologist. I am involved in teaching and training my junior colleagues, many of whom have gone on to become consultant neurologists all over the country.
