Biography

I initially I trained as a Surgeon. I changed to Emergency Medicine (A&E) Medicine in 1997 (South East Thames Rotation), and completed the Specialist Training in 2003, and took up my appointment as a Consultant the same year.
I developed a special interest in Focused Bedside Ultrasound (Bedside Emergency Ultrasound), and went on to do a 1 year fellowship at King’s College London. I run training courses for the College of Emergency Medicine, and have presented internationally, including Brazil & Nigeria (WACS 2010), Transforming Emergency Care in Nigeria June 2009. I am a faculty member of the Ultrasound Finishing School; which is accredited and recognised by the College of Emergency Medicine Sub-Committee for Ultrasound training. I use ultrasound in my day to day practice, as an extension of the physical examination. I am also very adept at Ultrasound-Guided procedures.
