He qualified from St George’s Hospital Medical School in 1982 after accrediting in General Medicine, Endocrinology and Diabetes, he retrained in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. His early research work focused on the neuroendocrinology of the oxytocin and vasopressin release, but later moved into the endocrinology of obstetrics focusing on the role of the hormone relax in reproduction. Since then the most important topics in his research activity have become preterm labour and the impact of heart disease on pregnancy outcome. He works in the combined Cardiac Disease in Pregnancy Clinic of the Chelsea and Westminster and Royal Brompton Hospitals.
