Professional leadership

Deputy Medical Director, Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge

I maintain an active research programme, particularly in relation to the outcomes of surgery for colorectal cancer, anal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and minimally invasive haemorrhoid treatments. I continue to audit my work, presenting at national and international meetings. In addition, I publish regularly in peer-review journals, am the co-editor of a book published by Cambridge University Press in 2014 entitled "A Surgeon's Guide to Anaesthesia and Peri-operative Care" and am often invited to lecture both in the UK and abroad.

Colorectal and General Surgeon, Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge.

My main interests have always been sporting, particularly rugby union. I won my Cambridge Blue in 1994, playing scrum-half for the winning Cambridge University side in the Varsity Match at Twickenham. I made over 50 appearances for The Blues, and won LX Club Colours and Under 21 Colours, captaining all sides including The Blues. At school, I represented England Schools 18 Group.

I now enjoy coaching junior rugby, playing golf as a member at Gog Magog Golf Club and spending time with my wife and 2 sons.
