I am an internationally trained cardiology specialist with a sub specialty in interventional cardiology/acute heart attack treatment and providing general cardiology services, cardiac CT, heart failure, pacemaker and arrhythmia management.
Having completed my junior doctor training in England in 2000, I undertook cardiology speciality training in Maastricht, Holland under Professor Wellens, benefiting from world-leading arrhythmia expertise.
On my return to England in 2004, I worked as a Cardiologist in Barnsley and Leeds - the busiest UK centre for interventional cardiology – undertaking sub speciality training in interventional cardiology. This was followed by an international fellowship at the prestigious Petie Salpetriere Hospital in Paris, training under Professor Montalescot, a world-leading authority in acute coronary syndromes/heart attacks.
In addition to my work at Benenden Hospital, I deliver cardiology services for the NHS in East Kent and in 2010, successfully undertook the first primary angioplasty for an acute heart attack patient and helped establish this transformational and award-winning service in East Kent.
I am the local priority group lead for cardiovascular research at East Kent Hospitals University Foundation Trust and have been involved with multiple international cardiovascular trials.
My clinical interests inlcude general cardiology, interventional cardiology, coronary CT scanning and the implanting of pacemakers - this is a wonderful and life changing intervention allowing patients to go out again, regain their confidence and enjoy life.
