After qualifying from the Middlesex Hospital Medical School University of London in 1976, I spent 10 years working in Hospital Medicine and obtained my MRCP(UK) in June 1979.
I decided to become a GP in 1983 and was a partner for 34 years.
I also worked for HM Prisons as a medical officer and as a forensic medical examiner for the Metropolitan Police from 2000 until 2009.
I worked with the NHS National Institute of Health Research(NIHR) as well as the Pharmaceutical Industry and have published several papers on research.
I was nominated in the NHS Champion awards in 2008 and was also given an award as an investigator in clinical research at BMA House by the NHS NIHR in February 2016.
In my practice, I try to achieve the best possible standard of care in line with GMC Good Practice guidelines always putting the patient’s best interest first. My consultations are patient centred with a joint decision between the patient and myself in treatment and management.
I volunteer for security work in the Community and I am still a member of the veterans team at my tennis club where I also help with coaching.
