Professional Profile

I trained in Respiratory and General Medicine in Merseyside and spent a period of time as a Clinical and Research Fellow at the CF Unit here at LHCH. I did my research doctorate (M.D.) in the CF department at LHCH and the University of Liverpool and my thesis topic was on CF related diabetes.

Following completion of my training, I worked as a Consultant in CF, Respiratory and General medicine at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Trust, one of the largest NHS Trusts in the South-West of England, prior to relocating back to Merseyside in 2016.
