Dr Michael Rose
BSc, MD, FRCP
I was a consultant in neurology at King's College Hospital and at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Woolwich from 1996 to 2019. I now work part time for the NHS doing clinics at the Whittington Hospital.
During the COVID pandemic I have been helping as an acting medical examiner and I have been working as a COVID vaccinator.
I did my neurology training at Atkinson Morley's Hospital, the National Hospitals for Neurology, Queen Square, St Bartholomew's Hospital and the Royal London Hospital. I was a Medical Research Council research fellow investigating mitochondrial muscle disease. I spent a year in Rochester, New York gaining further specialist training in muscle disease.
At Queen Elizabeth Hospital I ran several general neurology clinics seeing all neurology cases including headaches, strokes, dizziness, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy. I established a successful First Seizure clinic at Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
I helped to establish a nationally respected regional muscle disease clinic service at King's College Hospital where I saw patients with both suspected and proven muscle disease.
I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (FRCP) and I was an elected member of the RCP Council that meets 6 times a year to develop RCP policy in relation to professional and clinical matters. This council considers and acts on current issues affecting professional practice and standards for the benefit of patients. I demitted from the Council after my three year term ended in 2018.
I was active in neurology training as an educational supervisor at King's College Hospital. I am a regular examiner for post-graduate medical trainees and was on the boards of several RCP examination committees.
I am a co-editor of the Neuromuscular Diseases Cochrane Review Group.
I have published papers, book chapters, and books on neurology and muscle disease. I am continuing my research in muscle disease with a particular interest in clinical trials and quality of life issues.
