      Background Information 
      Professional profile:

      I studied medicine at Downing College, Cambridge and Kings College Hospital, London, qualifying in 1984. I trained in General Surgery, Orthopaedics and Neurosurgery for five years before starting a career in plastic surgery in 1989. As well as operating at Roehampton, The Lister and Guys and St Thomas’s Hospitals, I gained a Hand and Microsurgery Fellowship in the USA, receiving certification of higher surgical training in plastic surgery in 1996.

      My private interests are in aesthetic surgery, skin and hand surgery. The aesthetic surgery sector is changing rapidly with the National Care Standards being introduced in 2002 which regulate this speciality. Whilst there are many people offering plastic surgery, not all are fully accredited plastic surgeons. With a full training in plastic surgery both in the UK and USA, I feel I am best placed to advise patients on the risks, as well as the benefits of aesthetic surgery.

      Mr Gately retired from the NHS in May 2016 after 32 years of service. He continues to teach and has developed links in Nepal where he visits to provide both teaching and surgery.
