Background Information

I qualified from Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals Medical School in 1996 graduating with University Honours. I underwent post-graduate training at Hammersmith, Royal Brompton and King's College Hospitals in London and undertook a two year interventional cardiology fellowship at the Aalst Cardiovascular Centre in Belgium. I was appointed as Clinical Lecturer in Cardiology at King's College London in 2008 prior to taking up my current post as Consultant Cardiologist at King's College Hospital in 2010.
