My current post
I have been a Consultant General Surgeon at Heatherwood and Wexham Park Hospitals since 1995, since when I have been in Private Practice in East Berkshire. Wexham Park Hospital is a large acute District General Hospital in East Berkshire, just West of London. The Heatherwood site in Ascot is where low risk elective surgery is performed and Out Patients are seen. Other Hospitals in the Group are King Edward V11 Hospital in Windsor and St Marks Hospital in Maidenhead where Out Patients are seen.
During my time in East Berkshire I have been closely involved in education. I was for many years the Programme Director of the Basic Surgical Skills Course, the Specialist Registrar course and the Care of the Critically Injured Surgical Patient course. I was Course Director of the Laparoscopic Skills course and ran a series of study days for Surgical Trainees and a study day for Consultant colleagues on laparoscopic aortic surgery.
I have been Wine Secretary of the Windsor and District Medical Society for several years and served as President in 2012-13.
I have held a variety of positions in the School of Surgery in Oxford and for a period of 5 years was Training Programme Director, responsible for coordinating the training of all the senior surgical trainees in the region. During the last 3 of these years I was a member of the National Committee that determined and put in place the changes in appointment of senior trainees.
I am a member of the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland, the Vascular Society of Great Britain and Ireland and the British Association of Paediatric Surgeons.
I am the Lead for General Paediatric Surgery for the Frimley Health Foundation Trust.
My private practice is conducted in East Berkshire at the private clinics and hospitals in Maidenhead, Windsor and Slough.
Having undergone undergraduate medical training and early postgraduate training in the East End of London, I spent a couple of years training in Paediatric Surgery in Leeds. I undertook a period of full time research in Oxford before doing the final stage of higher surgical training there.

NHS appointments are conducted at St Mark Hospital in Maidenhead, Wexham Park Hospital in Slough and Heatherwood Hospital in Ascot.
Privately, I consult at the Bridge Clinic in Maidenhead, the Princes Margaret Hospital in Windsor and The Thames Valley Spire Hospital, close to Wexham Park Hospital in Slough.
