Professional profile

Having finished my Basic Surgical Training in Bristol and then my Higher Surgical Training in Cambridge I obtained my Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training in Ophthalmology and gained entry in the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council. I have subsequently completed a sub-specialist Fellowship in Glaucoma and received the International Glaucoma Association Research Award in 2005/06. My MD thesis, entitled 'Neuroprotection in Glaucoma', was registered in 2006/07. During my surgical electives from 1994 to 1997 I was pleased to gain experience at the University of North Carolina (USA), the Republic of China (Taipei), and East Africa (Kenya). I was appointed by the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust as a Consultant in Ophthalmology with a special interest in Glaucoma. I am in charge of providing a tertiary referral Glaucoma Service for the Region of East Yorkshire. I enjoy teaching and lecturing to medical students, opticians, other doctors and Glaucoma experts. I like to stay at the forefront of medicine and surgery by keeping an active interest in research and developments and attending, as well as presenting at, International Conferences.
