Biography: Dr Enson Cherian Thomas MD FRCP Chest Medicine Consultant Pulmonology (internal medicine)

I have been working as Consultant Respiratory and General Physician at Bedford Hospital from December 2002. For the last several years I am also the clinical lead for Respiratory Services. Since then I was involved in developing the Respiratory services at Bedford Hospital. The service developments include the following:

  1. Establishment of Lung Cancer Services including Lung Cancer MDT,
  2. Commencement of NIV service and recently the setting up of monitored beds,
  3. Setting up of fully staffed Lung Function Lab providing full lung function studies, diagnostic sleep studies, Bronchial Provocation studies, Flight assessment and exhaled Nitric Oxide measurement,
  4. Setting up of Pleural Ultrasound and outpatient pleural service,
  5. Integrated COPD service,
  6. Skin prick tests and anti IgE service,
  7. Respiratory Nursing service and
  8. COPD, severe Asthma, ILD and Hyperinflation MDT

In addition to this we have a full-fledged TB service and are in the process of setting up an ILD service. We are also a post graduate training hospital and have 3 Registrars on the firm, 2 of which are in training posts. I played a key role in the mentoring and development of Dr Amer Saleem, whom we later appointed as a Locum Consultant Physician at our hospital.

RESEARCH:

 As part of my postgraduate training in India I conducted a study on ‘Pulmonary functions during sleep in patients of COPD’. This was submitted and accepted as part of the requirement towards my M.D. degree.

During my training I was involved in a study to investigate the optimum dose of salbutamol for the treatment of acute exacerbations of COPD admitted to hospital. This was accepted as a poster presentation at the European Respiratory Society annual congress, 2002, Stockholm and later published in the CHEST.

I have been a principal investigator for several large multicenter, multinational clinical trials.

TEACHING & TRAINING:

 I have been actively involved in teaching and training throughout my career starting from my days as a Houseman. This has continued to date and I am regularly involved in teaching and training medical students from Cambridge, foundation trainees, core medical trainees, GP trainees, nurses, GP’s and Specialist Registrars. I regularly teach on the Foundation core teaching programme and tutorials for the Cambridge medical students.

I have been a ‘Recognized Clinical Teacher’ for the University of Cambridge from March 2006 and the Under Graduate Specialty Tutor in Medicine from January 2011.

I have worked as an ‘Educational Supervisor’ for the Foundation training programme and our Specialist Registrars. This has helped me to have a very useful insight and knowledge into Foundation training and its management. As a result I am now able to provide appropriate leadership to medical education.
