About me

I am a Consultant General, Colorectal and Laparoscopic Surgeon. I work in the NHS at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust and practice privately at Spire Parkway Hospital, Solihull and BMI Priory Hospital, Edgbaston.

I am the Trust Lead for Colorectal Cancer and sat on the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland Council from 2016 - 2019.

Outside of work I enjoy supporting Somerset County Cricket Club, cooking, and spending time with my two children.
