Qualified from King’s College London in 1997, and returned to Sheffield to complete specialised orthopaedic training. Appointed at Rotherham Hospital in 2009 as a consultant with a special interest in shoulder and elbow surgery.
Originally from Sheffield I went to study medicine at King’s College London. After completing a degree (BSc) in biomedical science qualified in medicine in 1997. Working initially in the South East, I returned to the Sheffield region to commence and complete my orthopaedic training.
