Professional profile

Availability - Murrayfield: Wednesday 11.30am-1.30pm alternate weeks.

Following undergraduate medical school in Glasgow, I worked in London and Edinburgh before returning to Glasgow for Orthopaedic training. My fellowship training in hand surgery was at the Royal Adelaide Hospital in South Australia.

I was appointed in Fife to develop a hand service in 1999, and since then I have set up and run a fully audited clinical practice in hand, wrist and elbow surgery. Approximately 40% of my practice deals with trauma and its follow up.

Personal Profile

Having been brought up in Edinburgh and studied in Glasgow, I have now settled back in Edinburgh, with a Glaswegian tinge to my accent. I live with my architect husband in a house that I am sure will be finished one day, and with my four fun-loving kids. In my spare time (!) I enjoy homework and music practise, and as a family we all enjoy outdoor pursuits.
