I am a Consultant Neurologist, practising at both the Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust (Russells Hall, Guest and Corbett Hospitals) and the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (Queen Elizabeth Hospital).
I qualified from Birmingham University in 1998, with a BSc (First Class), PhD and MBChB, subsequently obtaining the MRCP in 2001. I trained in Neurology in London (National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and St Thomas Hospital) and Birmingham. I was the Clinical Lecturer in Neurology (2004 to 2008). I was elected to the Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians in 2014. I was awarded an Honorary Chair (Professor of Neurology) at Aston University in 2015.
I have extensive experience in the diagnosis and management of all common and uncommon neurological conditions - particularly headaches, dizziness, funny turns, fits and faints, weakness, weakness and numbness.
Alongside my general neurology practice, I run the Multiple Sclerosis service at Russells Hall Hospital and run an active research programme on the topic of MS. In part recognition of this work, I won the "Outstanding Neurologist" category of the first MS services QuDos awards in 2015.
