profiles

I began undergraduate training at Sheffield Medical School in 1988, completing my medical degree in 1993. I undertook house jobs at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield and following this I spent a year teaching anatomy at Leeds Medical School.

After six months in the Accident and Emergency department in Preston, I undertook Basic Surgical Training in Edinburgh for three and a half years which included six months of research.

My six years of registrar training was completed on the Stoke / Oswestry rotation and in my final year I undertook a Fellowship at Sportsmed Hospital, Adelaide, South Australia, which is the busiest sports medicine / hip & knee replacement hospital in the Southern Hemisphere.

I was appointed Consultant at New Cross hospital in January 2006, with a specialist interest in hip and knee replacements and sports injuries. I am the Lead for all orthopaedic governance and audit issues.

Outside interests are most sports, especially squash (former British U14 & U16 champion), mountainbiking, running and golf.
