  • Biography

    I graduated from Leicester Medical School in 2000 and then commenced postgraduate training within the midlands region, obtaining my MRCP in 2003.  I moved to Newcastle in 2004 and later started specialist training in elderly care and general medicine.  I commenced my Consultant post at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in July 2013.

    I work as both an acute physician and an elderly care Consultant on the RVI site.  I am involved in developing a new acute elderly care service, with the intention of providing early specialist review or guidance into the care of older people admitted to the hospital.

    I have an interest in education at an undergraduate and postgraduate level, and have co-founded the Association of Elderly Medicine Education (AEME).  This association aims to organise and support activities related to the education of current and future elderly care physicians.
