I completed my cardiology training and postgraduate MD qualification in the North East, developing a subspecialty interest in heart failure and advanced rhythm management/complex device implantation.
I introduced and jointly lead the service within our trust for implantation and follow up of complex cardiac devices and lead our local multidisciplinary heart failure service. I jointly lead cardiology research within the Northumbria healthcare and act as Principal Investigator on several multicentre NIHR trials.
I am a member of the examination board for the British Heart Rhythm Society professional accreditation qualification. I have a major interest in atrial fibrillation and am passionate about improving the quality of care in this area.
I have developed local and regional pathways to try and optimise the care of patients with AF. I have designed and introduced an innovative patient safety alert card for non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOACs) which has been implemented across the North of England and adopted by many other parts of the UK.
