Professional Expertise: My primary interest is in the Acute presentation of strokes and their management. I am particularly interested in thrombolysis. I with my colleagues and the rest of the multidisciplinary team provide care for stroke patients from admission right through the rehabilitation process to discharge. We also provide outpatient assessment of potential TIAs and advise on secondary prevention. My other interests revolve around teaching, I lecture to the undergraduate medical students at the UEA, organise their stroke rotation and provide teaching to staff within the hospital. I am also involved in a number of research trials at the hospital and hopefully these will lead to improved care and quality of life for stroke patients.
