I qualified in 1995 from University of Wales College of Medicine with Commendation. Originally from Lancashire, I returned to the northwest in 1996 for my basic surgical training, which I completed in 1998.

I am a very keen sportsman who has been involved in many sports over the years. I have played badminton and squash at university team level, and have been a keen cyclist and swimmer. Currently, I run for a local Athletic Club in the veterans division. I have completed 2 marathons, the last one in just over 3 hours.

If you do sport at any level, please be assured that I will take your concerns very seriously. I will do my best to help you return to your sport. My aim is to make your sporting injury a blip in your sporting career rather than a end to it.
