I undertook my undergraduate medical training at the University of Edinburgh qualifying in 1999. During my basic surgical training I also worked in Northampton and Christchurch, New Zealand. My subsequent surgical training was in Edinburgh with placements in both Dundee and Glasgow. I undertook two years of post graduate research at the Edinburgh Breast Unit under the supervision of Professor Mike Dixon. I have been a consultant in the Edinburgh Breast Unit since 2011 where I work with a team of seven other consultants collectively treating over 700 new breast cancers annually.
I manage a significant number of new cancers detected via the Scottish Breast Screening Programme. I have a very keen interest in neoadjuvant endocrine therapy and subsequent breast conservation surgery employing both well-established and novel oncoplastic techniques. I work very closely with other disciplines including pathology, radiology, oncology and clinical genetics. I currently chair the Quality Improvement Team for the breast unit and have a keen interest in the safe streamlining and improvement of patient care pathways.

I grew up in London and was educated at Colfe’s School and Epsom College. With a paediatrician and a surgeon as parents and Professors of biochemistry and anatomy as grandfathers, I was destined for a career in medicine. However, before commencing my studies (and since) I spent much time in South West France educating myself on the fineries of peasant life, bad French and the joys of cycling the open road - without performance enhancing drugs. Since graduating I have stayed this side of the border having married Fiona Johnston, a fellow medical student, with whom I have three small children. I just about balance a busy home life with that of a busy breast surgeon.Back to top
