Mr Stuart James qualified in 1994 from University College London and commenced surgical training at The Royal Free Hospital. He was awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1998, age 28. After a period of full time research in wound healing which led to the award of a Master of Surgery (MS) degree an Arris and Gale Lectureship and College Medal, Mr James moved to six years Higher Surgical Training in Plastic Surgery in London and the South East, with rotations at the St Andrews Unit in Chelmsford (2001-2), St Thomas’ Hospital (2003-4), The Royal Marsden Hospital (2005) and The Craniofacial Unit at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital (2006).
