1992 - date Following the transfer of the St Peter's Hospitals into the UCLH Trust in 1992, I became Consultant Nephrologist at the Middlesex Hospital, London. Since June 2005 (following the move of Nephrology from the Middlesex Hospital to the Royal Free, to form the London North Central Renal Unit), I have held a joint appointment as Consultant Nephrologist to the Royal Free and University College London Hospitals.


My clinical duties involve the care of patients with acute and chronic renal failure, those being treated with maintenance haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, and also patients with renal transplants.

My postgraduate training included St Thomas's Hospital, Northwick Park Hospital, Harefield Hospital and the St Peter's Hospitals. I have trained in general medicine, renal medicine and intensive care and hold joint accreditation in both renal and general internal medicine.

I am principal author or co-author of over 100 publications, presentations and chapters which cover various aspects of renal disease.

My research interests include oxalate metabolism, purine metabolism, renal calculi and clinical nephrology.

I have extensive committee experience at hospital, district and regional level and I have been a clinical director for nephrology and urology for four years. I continue to be involved in both general and specialist undergraduate and postgraduate teaching.
