His PhD was funded by the British Heart Foundation and addressed the mechanisms by which the kidneys cause hypertension by retaining/reabsorbing sodium salt in patients with inherited forms of hypertension.
Following specialist training in hypertension, clinical pharmacology and general (internal) medicine in Cambridge and Nottingham,
He was appointed as a Consultant Physician at the Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust specialising in Hypertension and General (Internal) Medicine.
