Consultant Breast Surgeon, Edinburgh Breast Unit, Western General Hospital, Edinburgh
I grew up in London and was educated at Colfe’s School and Epsom College. With a paediatrician and a surgeon for parents and professors of biochemistry and anatomy for grandparents, there was little chance of me ending up anywhere other than doing something in the field of 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 young children. I just about balance a busy home life with that of a busy breast surgeon.
