Optimising patient outcomes and minimising complications following hip and knee surgery
James is married and has two children. His sporting achievements are a fond but increasingly distant memory, reaching county standard at both cricket and hockey. He still enjoys keeping fit, playing golf and the occasional cricket match. Most time away from work is spent exploring the countryside as a family.
