Job Title Retired. Previously, Cardiff Porphyria Service, Department of Medical Biochemistry, University Hospital of Wales and Institute for Medical Education, Cardiff University

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.

This includes a number of international collaborative projects aimed at supporting other centres diagnosing and managing porphyria through sharing information and developing consensus guidelines.
