Dr Waits graduated from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne in 1999. His Anaesthetic training was undertaken in the Nottingham & East Midlands training scheme, a highly competitive training program well known for its excellent training reputation. During his registrar years, he undertook time as a research fellow, developing an interest in major haemorrhage and undergraduate and postgraduate education.
He was appointed as a Consultant to Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust in September 2010. His clinical work involves anaesthesia for a wide range of both adult and paediatric patients, using both general and regional anaesthetic techniques. He has particular interests in Anaesthesia for Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery, Major General Surgery and Plastic & Aesthetic Surgery. Since 2019 I have been the Training Lead (College Tutor of The Royal College of Anaesthetists) for North Manchester General Hospital, leading the training of our trainee Anaesthetists.
