I have 33 years experience as a Consultant Anaesthetist, with a special interest in anaesthesia, analgesia and critical care for major burns from 1983 to 2011. One-third of my caseload has been children until 2011, 20% under 3 years old; my paediatric practice is now ceased however since ceasing NHS practice.
I have been a medical manager (clinical director, medical director) in my Trust, and have been involved nationally in the development of appraisal, and in recent years, revalidation processes nationally (NHS Revalidation Support Team, RST, till 2011). I remain active as an appraiser.
