Professional Background

I qualified with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Physiology in 1971 at University College London. I graduated in medicine at University College London in 1974. I did my postgraduate training in medicine at University College and The Whittington Hospitals. 
I was a British Heart Foundation Junior Research Fellow at The Royal Brompton Hospital where my medical thesis (MD) was accepted in 1980. My specialist training in cardiology was at The London Chest Hospital as a registrar and at The Royal Free and Harefield Hospitals as a Senior Registrar.

I became a Member of the Royal College of Physicians in 1977 and a Fellow in 1994. I am also a Fellow of The European Society of Cardiology and The American College of Cardiology.
I was appointed a consultant cardiologist in 1987 and now work at Barnet & Chase Farm and The Royal Free Hospital NHS Trusts. I have worked at The Wellington Hospital and The Harley Street Clinic since 1988 and have private consulting rooms in North London.
I am a Cardiology advisor to The London Ambulance Service NHS Trust – advising on all aspects of pre-hospital care of patients with cardiological emergencies.

Between October 2008 and September 2010 I was President of The Section of Cardiology of The Royal Society of Medicine responsible for a programme of training for the next generation of Cardiologists. I continue to be involved in many aspects of professional training in Cardiology.

Current Medical Practice

I have a busy NHS practice at The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust as well as a substantial private practice in North London. I treat all forms of adult heart disease. I have particular skills in the assessment of patients suffering with angina and acute coronary syndromes. I also specialize in the care of heart failure and heart rhythm abnormalities.

I have undertaken over 10,000 cardiac catheterisations and about 2,000 coronary angioplasties including out of hours primary angioplasties for ST elevation acute myocardial infarctions. I have implanted about 1500 permanent pacemakers both single and dual chamber systems.

Publications & Medical Education

I have published papers on a wide range subjects related to adult clinical cardiology. These have been presented at international meetings and published in peer reviewed publications. I am a frequent invited lecturer on a wide range of topics related to cardiology.

Medico Legal Practice

I provide expert reports across the range of cardiology. I have provided reports in actions relating to clinical negligence and personal injury. I have attended conferences with council and also appeared in court to give expert evidence. I am familiar with the Woolf reforms and am able to comply with the new rules governing expert medical evidence. I have attended courses in the preparation of expert reports and provision of evidence in court. Most of my work has been for claimants.
