Personal Profile

Mr Khalil wanted to be an eye surgeon as a child when his father suddenly lost his sight and that gives him tremendous empathy for every patient that he sees.

He has worked in Scotland, North Wales and England and has an FRCS degree from the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland and therefore has the flexibility, adaptability and ability to mix well with all nationalities.

He speaks English, Urdu and Punjabi fluently.

Mr Khalil likes hockey, cricket, boxing and likes cycling, long walks and playing chess. He relaxes by listening to Indian and western music and watching movies with his family.
