Personal profile:

With three sons to raise non medical life is never quiet! I spend most of my spare time kicking a football around the garden or being beaten at FIFA on the X-box. Saturday mornings are spent at the David Lloyd gym watching tennis or swimming lessons (whilst drinking a latte). I enjoy the family skiing holiday at Easter and two weeks in the sun for the summer.

I have been practising Goju-Ryu karate since 2005, although probably need to devote more time in order to progress. I find that self defence helps me cope with a life spent mostly working for the NHS. Apart from time abroad, I have always lived in south Liverpool and currently reside ten minutes from Spire.
