Professional profile

I am a dedicated hand and wrist surgery consultant at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust in Yorkshire. In 2004 I qualified from the University of Leicester, then completed both my membership (MRCS, 2007) and fellowship (FRCS, 2013) exams with the Royal College of Surgeons, and an MSc (2011) in orthopaedic surgery.

In 2012 I was awarded an educational bursary award by The Royal College of Surgeons of England. In 2014-15, I completed 1 of 11 nationally competitive advanced training programme hand and wrist surgery fellowships in Manchester, which are recognised by the British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSSH) as the best hand surgery training programmes. I worked for three highly experienced hand and wrist surgery consultants, one of whom was the president of the BSSH at that time. Currently I perform in excess of 500 hand and wrist surgery operations per year, as recorded in my surgical logbook.

I provide a specialist service in hand and wrist surgery, and practice dedicated hand and wrist surgery in my NHS consultant post (in addition to my orthopaedic on calls).

I regularly attend the BSSH scientific meetings, and remain committed to and active with research and audit in hand and wrist surgery techniques. My last systematic review of the evidence for surgical treatment of STT joint wrist arthritis is being published in The Journal of Hand Surgery (AP volume) in October 2017, and I presented this evidence at the BSSH scientific meeting in Bath in 2015 (see attached article). I also presented my audit work comparing our hand trauma service with the BSSH guidelines at the scientific meeting in 2013.
