Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon (Paediatrics only)

MBChB (Hons), FRCS (ORL-HNS), PG Dip Clin Ed

I graduated in 1996 with honours from the University of Glasgow Medical School where I received the prestigious Brunton Memorial Prize for the most distinguished graduate of the year. I was also awarded the Hall Prize for paediatrics and the Cullen Medal for surgery.

I completed advanced specialty training in ear, nose and throat, head and neck surgery in Dundee and Edinburgh and I undertook a one year fellowship in paediatric otolaryngology at Yorkhill Children's Hospital, Glasgow. I was appointed to the University Department of Otolaryngology in Edinburgh as a Consultant ENT Surgeon with a specialist interest in paediatric otolaryngology in 2007.

I enjoy all aspects of my current Paediatric ENT practice at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Edinburgh where I am currently lead clinician for paediatric ENT services; making a significant contribution to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and training as well as acting as an examiner in the Final MB examinations at the University of Edinburgh School of Medicine. I serve as a council member for the British Association for Paediatric Otolaryngology promoting excellence in the field and I'm a member of the teaching faculty of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.
