Ipswich Hospital

I joined Ipswich Hospital in 1995 and was clinical lead for geriatric medicine from 1998 to 2009 seeing the department through a period of considerable change including the development of the hospital’s ‘Complex Care’ model of specialist wards.

A Cambridge and Royal London Hospital graduate, I trained in Hull, Birmingham (QEH – nephrology/endocrinology) and Charing Cross Hospital (diabetes/endocrinology) where I completed my MD.

I have worked in geriatric medicine since 1998 firstly at Charing Cross and then as a senior registrar at the Royal London Hospital, developing my  interest in Parkinson’s Disease and bringing insights from my previous career and research in diabetes medicine to support Parkinson’s patient care.
