Stroke services at UCLH

Professional background

I qualified from St Bartholomews and The Royal London in 2004 and then continued to complete my general medical training in North East London. I then progressed from this to higher specialist training in General Internal and Geriatric Medicine. During this time my interest in stroke medicine developed and I consolidated this during a clinical fellowship at UCLH towards the end of my training. I triple accredited with a CCT in Stroke, General Internal Medicine and Geriatric Medicine in 2013. Currently Im a senior teaching fellow at UCL working with the Education Unit at ION to develop a Stroke MSc course and building an interest in clinical education. Im also on the faculty of the IMPACT course as both a teacher and curriculum developer. My clinical work is focussed solely on stroke throughout the patient journey from acute care through to the recovery phase.
