Biography


I have recently retired as a Consultant Chemical Pathologist having provided a clinical and diagnostic service for all types of porphyria in Cardiff for 20 years. This included a nationally commissioned specialised service for acute porphyria, and a regional cutaneous porphyria clinic in collaboration with colleagues in Dermatology.
I am a founder member of the European Porphyria Network (EPNET), which was established to improve healthcare for porphyria patients and their families. This includes a number of international collaborative projects aimed at supporting other centres diagnosing and managing porphyria through sharing information and developing consensus guidelines.
