my training 

Undergraduate and post graduate training 

My undergraduate Medicate training was at  Imperial College and St Mary's Hospital Medical School in 1994. Thereafter, I completed junior doctor doctor posts at St Mary's Hospital  in London and the Cambridge Military Hospital in Surrey. After that,  I worked at the Royal London Hospital in Accident and Emergency for 6 months and the the Royal Brompton Hospital in their cardiac intensive care unit. I then  undertook my junior medical rotation in Medicine and Cardiology in Portsmouth.

 

I commenced my specialist Cardiology training in 2001 with attachments to Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth, Salisbury District general Hospital and University Hospital Southampton respectively. 

In 2015 I moved from the Wessex Deanery to the West Midlands Deanery, where I successfully completed an intense 2 year Research MD under the supervision Professor Lip. This research was focused on Cardiovascular risk and endothelial function.

 

Following my MD, I  spent  18 months at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. During this period   I completed my cardiology training with sub-specialty training in Heart Failure and Complex Devices. I began my consultant post at Poole and Royal Bournemouth Hospitals in August 2008.

As a Consultant 

At Poole Hospital within the cardiac department I am the Clinical Lead for Research,  Heart Failure,  Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing and Cardiac Pacing Services. I am the President of the Poole Heart Support Group and I am member of the pan Dorset Prescribing Forum and the AF network.

 

I maintain a strong interest in research and teaching. I was appointed as an Associate Teaching Professor to George's Medical School in Grenada in 2012 in recognition of my commitment to their student's teaching . 

 

I was appointed a  Visiting Research Professor at Leeds Beckett University in 2016.

 

My NHS Consultant post involves me being primarily based at Poole Hospital, although I have twice weekly fixed sessions at Royal Bournemouth Hospital in coronary angiography and advanced cardiac pacing.

 

Outside of my medical practice Professor I enjoy running, skiing, travelling and watching movies.  I was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad, where I spent my early childhood and visit my family.
