Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Rehman has been passionate about eye surgery for over 18 years, his constant inspiration being the patients he treats and the improvements to their lives that treatment can bring.
Mr Rehman lives and works in Yorkshire, where he completed his advanced specialist ophthalmic surgical training. He was appointed as Consultant at Calderdale & Huddersfield NHS Trust in 2002.
A great pioneer of breakthrough treatments, Mr Rehman constantly distinguishes himself by spearheading major ophthalmic developments and as such he has successfully notched up several noteworthy ‘firsts’ in the Yorkshire region and beyond.
Not one to rest on former achievements, he continues to devote much time and energy towards further innovation with particular emphasis on helping to encourage the adoption of new ideas wherever they have been clearly proven to help improve the lives of his patients.  He continues to work tirelessly to identify innovative new developments in macular degeneration, cataract surgery and vision correction technology, bringing major advancements in eye care from around the world.

Personal profile:

Outside his working life, Shafiq spends as much time as possible with his wife, four children and one very lively labradoodle. He maintains long held interests in cosmology, evolutionary science and in the history of medical and scientific endeavours. He recently re-kindled a long lost interest in golf spurred on by one of his sons who torments and inspires him in equal measure! Shafiq remains an avid traveller and hopes one day to circumnavigate the world but probably not until he has hung up his operating gloves.
