Training and Background

I attended medical school at both St Andrews and Cambridge Universities.  I went on to complete my medical research doctorate in Nottingham, focusing on the role of blood cells in myocardial infarction.  My specialist Cardiology training was at St Thomas’ Hospital London and in 2009 I was awarded the Cordis International Interventional Fellowship and spent a year in Adelaide, Australia. In 2011 I was appointed Consultant Cardiologist at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and I also run Cardiology clinics at Roodlands Hospital, Haddington, the Spire Shawfair Park Hospital and the Edinburgh Clinic.
