  • Biography

    A Consultant since 2000; for over 8 years, until 2012, I was Lead Clinician for the South East Scotland Interventional Neuroradiology Service. I then moved to Newcastle to take up the UK’s first University Chair in Interventional Neuroradiology.

    My clinical interests include diagnostic and interventional Neuroradiology (INR). I am one of four consultants who provide the UK leading interventional Neuroradiology service at Newcastle for the North East and North Cumbria. We are one of only two UK centres to currently offer a seven day interventional service for stroke. I work closely clinically with the stroke physicians, neurosurgeons, neurologists and neurointensivists. We run joint clinics with vascular Neurosurgery as well as a dedicated INR clinic weekly and multiple neuroscience/stroke/cancer/paediatric specialist multidisciplinary meetings.

    My research is concentrated in running randomised controlled trials in stroke intervention and aneurysm therapy; cerebrovascular imaging and the evaluation of stroke care services (with many colleagues in Newcastle and around the UK). However the Neuroradiology research portfolio in Newcastle is far wider and expanding rapidly.

    Among my other professional activities, I chair the UK Stroke Research Network acute studies group. I represent the Royal College of Radiologists on the Intercollegiate Stroke Working party (which run the national stroke audit and produces the National Clinical guideline for Stroke). I am also chair of the British Society of Neuroradiologists Standards Subcommittee and Secretary to the UK Neurointerventional Group. I act as a specialist advisor to NICE, NCEPOD, HTA & Wellcome Trust.

    My family takes up most of my limited spare time.
