Personal profile


Consultant Physician, Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Working in acute general medicine and endocrinology with an emphasis on disorders of calcium and bone metabolism.


I trained in medicine at Cambridge and Birmingham and then worked for the Medical Research Council at their mineral metabolism unit in Leeds where I developed my interest in metabolic bone disease. I completed my training in endocrinology at Newcastle and moved to Manchester in 1990.

My main academic interests are the effect of non-skeletal diseases on bone and the assessment and treatment of osteoporosis. I am a Fellow of the National Osteoporosis Society having previously been their Treasurer and  secretary of the Bone and Tooth Society. I also have an interest in Paget's disease and have been chairman of the National Association for the Relief of Paget's disease and an international adviser to the Paget Foundation in the United States.

I have been involved in post graduate training in Endocrinology and Diabetes for much of my career. Until 2016 I chaired the speciality advisory committee for this training and since then have coordinated recruitment to training.

I am vice-chair of a NICE Technology Appraisal Committee and member of the Clinical Reference Group for Specialist Endocrinology.
