Consultant in Pancreatic-Biliary & Laparoscopic Surgery at St James's University Hospital, Leeds. I have an interest in surgery for pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis, gallbladder surgery, laparoscopic bile duct exploration and laparoscopic hernia surgery.
I graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Biochemisty from the University of Birmingham in 1995. I then studied Medicine and graduated from the University of Manchester with Honours in 2000 and completed my Doctorate of Medicine (MD) in 2008.
I completed my Higher Surgical Training in the North Western Deanery and have worked in London, Cambridge, Nottingham and Manchester. I completed a one-year Senior Fellowship in Hepatobiliary and Transplant Surgery at St. James's Hospital in Leeds and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in 2011. I started my Consultant career in 2013 at Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham, and obtained my Substantive Consultant post in Leeds in February 2014.
Have a passion for Medical Education, Surgical Training, and enjoy training the doctors of tomorrow. Am involved in change management projects in my organisation to help shape the NHS of the future. This is an exciting time for me!

My greatest passions are cooking, travel and fine wine. I always wanted to be a chef and love experimenting in the kitchen, baking for my theatre team, or having friends and family round for dinner.
I enjoy golf and currently trying to improve my poor handicap.
My other great passion is medical education, and currently teaching the Medical Students and Physician Associates of the University of Leeds.
