I followed my higher surgical training with a foot and ankle fellowship at the prestigious Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, further developing my knowledge and expertise in all aspects of foot and ankle surgery.

I returned to my native Yorkshire in 2011 to take up my appointment as Consultant Foot and Ankle Surgeon at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust.
