I am a Consultant in Anaesthesia & Intensive Care, providing routine and emergency care at Calderdale Royal Hospital, Halifax, across the full range of local surgical specialities. I subspecialise in Intensive Care Medicine, and have a significant commitment to this. I also provide a complex vascular access service in the Trust, specialising in tunnelled central venous line such as Portacaths and Groshong lines.
In Private Practice I utilise a range of general and local/regional anaesthetic techniques for all surgical specialities. I also provide a complex vascular access service.
I qualified from Aberdeen University, then trained in General Practice before embarking on a career in Anaesthesia.
