I’m a Consultant Cardiologist based at The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, where I’m the Heart Failure & Device Lead. I also treat private patients at the Spire and BMI hospitals in Manchester and Cheshire, where I work with some of the top cardiologists in the North West.
Patients come to me with a range of cardiovascular problems, such as chest pain, angina, palpitations, breathlessness or blackouts. I investigate symptoms using a range of tests and provide advice and treatment to achieve the best outcomes for my cardiac patients.
My particular areas of expertise are in advanced heart failure and complex pacemaker implantation, but I also specialise in general cardiology.
My clinical and research interests
I completed a British Heart Foundation funded PhD, investigating the influence of insulin-resistance on vascular regeneration alongside work looking at heart failure outcomes. During this reseach period, I published over 15 articles in peer-reviewed journals.
I’m currently working with Manchester University to investigate TRIAGE HF, a new way of monitoring patients using cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs). I’m also part of a group investigating the potential applications of single chamber ICDs with AF detection capability.
