I qualified from Bristol University in 1996 and was amongst a few to be awarded honours. My training took me to many hospitals including leading teaching hospitals such as the Bristol Royal Infirmary and Queens Medical Centre (Nottingham), where I also undertook a two year research fellowship. I became a full time substantive NHS consultant at Hereford in 2006 and have been undertaking private work at the Hereford Nuffield Hospital since then.
