I was appointed consultant in palliative medicine in April 2014. I trained in West Yorkshire and since September 2014, I work as medical lead for the Heartlands Hospital Palliative Care team. You might also come across me during my on-call duties at Marie Curie Hospice West Midlands. Your treating hospital team or consultant will get us involved if your care becomes complex, if you need specialist advice on managing physical and psychological symptoms, or if you or your family/friends need forms of social and nursing care support at a stressful time in your or their lives. My team and I are focussed on helping you achieve whatever goals in life remain.
