I work in a busy, 720 bed, successful district general hospital in Surrey. My principal role is that of an Acute Physician dealing with all medical admissions either via the emergency department (ED) or directly via general practitioners in the community.
Most of my work is on the Acute Medical Unit (AMU) and Ambulatory Emergency Care Unit (AECU) of the hospital as well as the ED, but I also do clinics, which primarily are in the field of diabetes, as well as general medicine and hypertension.
In addition to the above fields I also trained in Clinical Pharmacology, giving me an expertise in the management of patients with hypertension and lipid disorders.
I also have a great interest in drug safety. I Chair the Frimley Health Area Prescribing Committee and I am Clinical Governance Lead for the Medical Directorate at Frimley Park Hospital.
