Heart Confetti

I'm a consultant cardiologist at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, UK and associate professor at University of Birmingham.

I manage all aspects of adult cardiology which encompasses palpitations,  breathlessness, chest pain and dizziness. I also have an interest in preventive cardiology and the optimisation of traditional risk factors. 

The goal is to deliver outstanding clinical care and to manage your condition(s) in a holistic manner with clear dialogue and rapid assessment/investigations.  All of this is underpinned by contemporary evidence-based practice with a focus on effectiveness, patient safety and shared decision-making.
