Background Information 
Professional profile:
Mr Wemyss-Holden qualified from Nottingham University in 1988 and spent his years as a junior doctor in the Trent region.

Having decided upon a career in General Surgery, he did the majority of his specialist surgical training in the Leicester areaw but also spent nearly 3 years in Adelaide, South Australia. This has enabled him to develop a very wide experience in his chosen surgical specialty, particularly in the fields of complex liver and pancreatic surgery, as well as advanced laparoscopic surgery.

Mr Wemyss-Holden performs a variety of operations for patients with cancer of the liver and pancreas as well as a range of laparoscopic procedures, including laparoscopic cholecystectomy and hernia repair.
Personal profile:
Mr Wemyss-Holden enjoys the outdoor life and is a keen mountaineer and scuba diver. He combines both of these activities with his other great love - photography. He also actively participates in motorsport and prepares and maintains his own vehicles. During his more relaxed moments he enjoys cooking and carpentry.
