I am consultant rheumatologist offering private appointments for a range of musculoskeletal and rheumatic conditions.

I graduated with honours at Cardiff Medical School in 2005 and subsequently undertook my specialist training in the University Hospital of Wales. This involved training in specialist clinics including osteoporosis, biological therapies, connective tissue disease/lupus, soft tissue rheumatism, and ankylosing spondylitis. Subsequently I worked as a  consultant at the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Bath, where I undertook further specialization in musculoskeletal ultrasound and metabolic bone disease. I am currently the clinical lead for Osteoporosis & Bone Health and Rheumatology Musculoskeletal Ultrasound in the Croydon Health Service NHS Trust. With the former I am developing  a local integrated bone health service with colleagues from multiple medical and surgical specialites. With the latter I have developed a local diagnostic service and also set up a regional network with other centres in standardizing scanning practice and training. As part of this service I provide US guided musculoskeletal injections and I have been training other doctors in the use of MSK US for several years. For the development of these services I was awarded a Clinical Excellence Award in 2016. Furthermore, I am Co-lead on the development of an Early Inflammatory Arthritis service with the chief objective being to diagnose and treat inflammatory arthritis early, to preserve joint health and prevent long term damage, as per national best practice.

I have an extensive background in teaching, having been the Lead Clinical Tutor for Rheumatology at the University Hospital of Wales, and an Honorary Clinical Teacher at Cardiff University. For this I received an award in teaching excellence. I am currently the Course Director for Rheumatology and the University of South Wales and have overseen the
educational and examination material of the diploma and masters courses. I have also tutored on the degrees and found the MSc dissertation development with the students particularly rewarding. I am the SCE editor of the rheumatology exit
exam question database with Study PRN. On an annual basis I chair, organise and facilitate an annual MSK ultrasound training day and postgraduate GP education evening. I provide about 20 – 30 lectures, seminars and workshops a year to
doctors, allied health professionals and patients. I have also published and given lectures on all aspects of rheumatology in regional and national conferences.

To expand my skills base I undertook a Masters in Medical Law at Cardiff law school and write medico-legal reports on a regular basis following this training. I have been Medicines Management Chair and Medicines Safety Group Chair at Croydon Health services for 5 years overseeing the governance of medicines use in the trust. I am also an Appraiser of other doctors and work as a Medical Examiner for Croydon Health services reviewing cases of mortality and advising accordingly.

Personal profile

I am a very family orientated person. Outside of my work I am a keen reader and writer. I enjoy sports, travel and cooking. Additionally, in my spare time, I have been working for a UK-based non-governmental organisation (NGO) in raising funds for educational projects in impoverished countries. I have also done voluntary work in Pakistan and Sri Lanka, providing rheumatology care for local people who have limited access to health care facilities.

What is a Rheumatologist?

Musculoskeletal problems and autoimmune conditions afflict millions around the world. These disorders include somewhat common problems like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout, to the much more complex autoimmune problems like lupus, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and various rare and exotic autoimmune conditions. By definition, the best rheumatologists in London deal with any pain or disorders of the joints, muscles, tendons, bones, and connective tissues, including those caused by autoimmune conditions. Finding top rheumatologists near London is easy with the services of Doctify.

When to see a Rheumatologist?

It is important to note that patients experiencing acute or chronic pain from any of the rheumatology areas of concern often have two main questions for medical professionals: 1) what’s causing the pain, and 2) how can we make it go away. When not dealing with an autoimmune disease, the treatment options from rheumatologists in London may be focused on physical therapy, medications, injections (such as steroid or pain injections in the painted joint or muscle areas), or similar tactics. In cases of a suspected autoimmune disease, treatment may be somewhat more difficult.

There are a number of medication options of varying success, in addition to basic pain management regimens. Often, autoimmune diseases may require multiple visits – even when seeing the best rheumatologists in London, as they can be extremely difficult to diagnose and present with variable symptoms from a visit to visit. The most important thing to remember about rheumatologists in London is that they are highly-trained experts that are there to help alleviate your pain as much as possible and determine the root cause of the pain. It can be frustrating for patients who expect an immediate diagnosis and cure, as in many cases, the conditions treated by top rheumatologists in London are chronic and largely incurable. Nevertheless, with the treatment options available, a bit of patience, pain management, and persistence, most patients are able to find solutions to allow them to live their lives to the fullest.
