I am a vitreoretinal surgeon with over 13 years experience as a consultant. Over this period of time I have developed a well respected practice and a good reputation amongst the local GP's and patients.
I trained mainly at the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital (from 1993 -2000). Previous posts include the Wolverhampton Eye Infirmary (1992-1993) and the Royal Liverpool University Hospital (1991-1992). I qualified from Sheffield Medical School in 1990 and spent my house years in Sheffield(1990-1991).
