I'm a Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at Spire Manchester Hospital.

After my medical degree in Leeds, I completed my training in the Manchester region.

I became a Consultant in 2010 and worked at Trafford General Hospital, which later merged with Manchester Royal Infirmary.

I still provide an outreach service of endoscopy and outpatients at Trafford and Altrincham hospitals to serve the local population but the majority of my time is spent at MRI.
