Professional profile

Vinnie gained his medical qualification in Leeds, where he also undertook a degree in Psychology in relation to Medicine. During his general medical training, Vinnie developed a passion for caring for those affected by life-limiting illnesses, which led him to specialise in palliative medicine.

He has several years' experience as a consultant in palliative medicine in hospitals, hospices and the community in and around London. He is currently employed by The London Clinic (providing an inpatient and day case service) where, as a member of The London Clinic's in-house palliative care and symptom control service, Vinnie's services are provided without charge.

Additionally, Vinnie is the Responsible Officer and Appraisal Lead for The LondonClinic's medical staff.

Vinnie and the rest of the team work closely with nursing, medical and allied healthcare professionals within The London Clinic and liaise with teams in the community and in other hospitals, to ensure that people receive the care that they need, wherever they are. Vinnie's services are available to people with any underlying disease or illness (whether cancer or non-cancer), at any stage of that illness.

Vinnie has a particular interest and expertise in medical ethics and law, and gained a Masters degree in medical ethics and law in 2006. He lectures widely, including at Imperial College London and University College London, and has lectured at the General Medical Council (GMC) and the Medical Defence Union.

He also works as a medical case examiner for the GMC as part of their fitness to practise procedures, and as an ad hoc specialist adviser in end of life care to the Care Quality Commission. Vinnie's research interests are around innovative care at the end of life, and he is currently involved in a project with the Marie Curie Research Unit at University College London.

Personal profile

Vinnie's interests include running, cinema, technology, and taking an active role in family life with his wife and two young children.
