About me

I qualified from the University of Nottingham Medical School in 1991. I was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 1996. I obtained a M.D ( Doctor of Medicine) for my research into the immunology of colorectal cancer. I was awarded the Piedmont Prize by the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons in 1997 for this work. I completed my higher surgical training in Oxford and was appointed as a Consultant at Milton Keynes University Hospital in 2003.
I am the Senior Colorectal Surgeon in the Department and have recently completed six years as the Clinical Director. I recently completed training in Robotic Colorectal Surgery with the Versius system. Myself and my colleague are the first Surgeons in England performing this surgery.
I have been an Examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh since 2007.
Throughout the last 15 years I have been active in medical education. I have sat on the Oxford Deanery Higher Surgical Training Committee and have been a Regional Surgical Advisor/ Tutor for both the English and Edinburgh Royal Colleges of Surgery.
I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer in Postgraduate Surgical Education at the University of Buckingham Medical School.
I have had regular satisfactory annual appraisals and have recently been revalidated for a second 5 year cycle with the GMC.
