"Spire is committed to excellent patient care."
I qualified in medicine from Leeds University, with honours and Gold medal in 1989. After postgraduate ophthalmology training in Leeds, Southampton, Liverpool and Moorfields (London), I was appointed consultant ophthalmic surgeon at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust in 2000.
I specialise in cataract surgery (incl. multifocal and toric lenses) and in retinal diseases, for which I provide a Kent-wide tertiary referral service. I am a postgraduate trainer for cataract surgery for Kent, Surrey and Sussex Deanery and am a member of the examinations committee of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. I have carried out research in retinal diseases and have previously acted as lead researcher for Kent and Medway Comprehensive Local Research Network.
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Alexandra Hospital.
