Professional profile

I have been a consultant surgeon for over 16 years, specialising in laparoscopic and colorectal surgery, and I enjoy the full range of general and coloproctological surgical procedures. I have just stepped down as the lead for surgery at Warrington and Halton Hospital, after six and a half years in the post, to return to full time clinical duties.

I am heavily involved in surgical training, and have been nominated for surgical trainer of the year for the Mersey region on a number of occasions. I have presented papers at national and international meetings and published in several journals.
