Speaker's biography

Having trained in a variety of subjects, mainly in London, I settled at the Royal Free in 2010, where I now help to manage both the department of acute medicine and the department of health services for elderly patients.

I am involved in undergraduate and post graduate education, and have supervised several successful BSc projects.  I have held a role as doctor productivity lead at NHS Improvement and was the local lead for the High Intensity Speciality led Acute Care project on the Royal Free site.  My research was into chemokine biology in cancer which has served me well when thinking about clinical pathophysiological processes.
