I have been a consultant anaesthetist in the NHS since 1992. Until April 2012 I also practiced in Intensive Care but have now retired from that and solely work in anaesthetics. Prior to my consultant appointment my anaesthetic training was based at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel and associated hospitals. I also spent 2 years in the United States as a teaching physician and attending anesthesiologist. Since May 2012 I have been part-time in the NHS.
