I completed my medical degree in the University of Wales in Cardiff before moving to London in 1991. After completing general medical training in London I started my career in neurology. My training was in many of the major neuroscience centres in London including the Hammersmith Hospital, the National Hospital for Neurology, the Royal Free Hospital and King’s College Hospital. I have also done imaging research at the Hammersmith Hospital and was awarded a PhD in Clinical Neurosciences by Imperial College, London. This was followed by a two year post-doctoral Fellowship at the National Institutes of Health in the United States looking at brain recovery. I became a member of the Royal College of Physicians in 1992 and a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 2005.
In June 2001 I was appointed as a substantive NHS consultant in the Regional Neuroscience Centre at King’s. In 2012 I was appointed the Lead Clinician for Stroke at King’s and recently have been appointed as Head of the combined Neurology and Stroke department at King’s.
I started private work at the Harley Street Clinic in 2008 and have enjoyed a close working relationship with my neurosurgical colleagues in the London Neurosurgical Partnership. I also consult at the Shirley Oaks Hospital in Croydon and the Sloane Hospital in Bromley.
I have medicolegal expertise in the areas of stroke and general neurology. I have done a large amount of medicolegal work working for both the claimant and defendant and also as a single joint expert. I am able to provide expertise in the area of causation as well as condition and prognosis. I usually examine medicolegal cases in my private rooms at 78 Harley Street.
