I am a Consultant Cardiologist working in the Oxford Heart Centre at the John Radcliffe Hospital, part of the Oxford University Hospitals NHS foundation trust. 

I see private patients with heart problems at the Manor Hospital Oxford.

I see people with all kinds of heart problems, and so if you are having problems with breathlessness, leg swelling, palpitations (awareness of an abnormal heart beat), blackouts or collapses, or chest pain then I can help you.

I have extensive experience and knowledge in looking after patients with heart failure. I am the lead for heart failure care in Oxford.

In addition I specialise in the implantation of pacemakers and related devices (implantable defibrillators and cardiac resynchronisation therapy), and personally implant more of these than any other consultant in Oxford, over 200 in most years.
