    Background Information 
    Professional profile:

    Following undergraduate medical school in Glasgow, I worked in London and Edinburgh before returning to Glasgow for Orthopaedic training. My fellowship training in hand surgery was at the Royal Adelaide Hospital in South Australia

    I was appointed in Fife to develop a hand service in 1999, and since then I have set up and run a fully audited clinical practice in hand, wrist and elbow surgery. Approximately 40% of my practice deals with trauma and its follow up.

    Personal profile:

    Having been brought up in Edinburgh and studied in Glasgow, I have now settled back in Edinburgh, with a Glaswegian tinge to my accent.

    I live with my architect husband in a house that I am sure will be finished one day, and with my four fun-loving kids.

    In my spare time (!) I enjoy homework and music practise, and as a family we all enjoy outdoor pursuits.
