Consultant physician, medical legal expert
I am a consultant physician with an interest in Diabetes & Endocrinology and Acute & General medicine with a busy practice within Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust. The Trust serves a population of 420,000 people in West Yorkshire.
I grew up in the City of Bath and studied at King Edward’s School. I choose to study medicine at Leeds University and qualified with MBChB in 1996. I spent time at Bradford Royal Infirmary before undertaking further training in Derby, where I passed the MRCP in 2000. I spent a year working in the speciality of Diabetes & Endocrinology in Hamilton, New Zealand before returning to West Yorkshire in 2002 to undertake my specialist training.
I achieved specialist registration in Diabetes & Endocrinology and General Medicine in 2007 and started as a consultant that year, initially in North Lincolnshire before my substantive and current appointment in 2009. I was awarded FRCP in 2016.
My clinical practice covers general diabetes, a specialist diabetes foot service, a general endocrine service and thyroid cancer clinic as well as working in the acute medical unit.
