I am a specialist Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) surgeon, currently working as an ENT consultant at Salisbury Foundation Trust. I completed my postgraduate higher surgical training in Wessex in 2010 and was honorary clinical fellow in 2011 to leaders in the field of Otology, Cochlear Implant and Skull Base surgery in Sydney, Australia.
I am passionate about delivering the highest patient care. I won a 'Customer Care - Individual' highly commended award at Salisbury Foundation Trust in 2012 for excellent patient-centered care.
I have extensive training in all aspects of ENT. I manage and treat general ear, nose and throat disorders. I have a specialist interest in Otology (Ear Surger) and am lead ENT clinician for the Spires cleft lip and palate service at Salisbury, twinned with Oxford.
Research remains vital to medical advancements. I have published numerous papers in peer-reviewed journals and given national and international presentations. I have collaborated with clinicians in related fields.
I believe that training the next generation of doctors, nurses and allied staff is fundamental to ensuring future first-class patient care. I have been nominated for the Health Education in Wessex 'Shine Awards' in recognition of excellence in education and training. I have completed courses in clinical and educational supervision and am an undergraduate examiner at Southampton University.
I take part in management projects to optimise patient care, maximise efficiency and promote patient safety. I am a member of the joint hospital theater efficiency work-group, comprising both clinicians and hospital managers.
I especially enjoy working as a team member. As the Salisbury Spires cleft palate center ENT lead, I frequently liaise and collaborate with a wide range of professionals e.g. plastic and maxillofacial surgeons, speech and language therapists, paediatricians, psychologists and audiologists. I contribute to an annual national audit of audiologic outcomes in cleft plate children aged 2, 5 and 10 years, to ensure their hearing outcomes are good, and, if not, that their needs are addressed. As a result I have designed an ENT / audiology care pathway.
I am an enthusiastic, motivated, approachable and hard working surgeon who always puts his patients best interests first.
