I have been a consultant anaesthetist in Reading since 2002, covering all areas of NHS and private practice locally. I first qualified in London in 1991. I did several years further medical training, gaining MRCP before choosing my specialist training as an anaesthetist at St Thomas and St Georges anaesthetic training programmes. I became a Fellow of the Royal College of Anaesthetists in 1999.
