I attended medical school at both St Andrews and Cambridge Universities. I went on to complete my medical research doctorate in Nottingham, focusing on the role of blood cells in myocardial infarction. My specialist Cardiology training was at St Thomas’ Hospital London and in 2009 I was awarded the Cordis International Interventional Fellowship and spent a year in Adelaide, Australia. In 2011 I was appointed Consultant Cardiologist at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and I also run Cardiology clinics at East Lothian Community Hospital, Haddington, the Spire Shawfair Park Hospital and Nuffield Health Edinburgh Hospital.

My specialist interest is percutaneous coronary intervention (stents) but I am trained in all aspects of cardiology including pacemakers and valve disease.

I welcome referrals for chest pain, breathlessness, palpitation, dizziness, management of cholesterol and high blood pressure, and cardiovascular risk assessment. I act as an expert witness and provide reports in medicolegal cases.
