Professional profile

I qualified from Birmingham Medical School in 1979. I trained in both the East and West Midlands and I was appointed Consultant ENT Surgeon in 1990. In addition to having a busy, general adult and paediatric ENT practice I lead a National/International referral service treating chronic and traumatic ear problems, and Otosclerosis. I co-introduced fibre lasers to UK ear surgery in the 1990s and I remain at the forefront in this field. A permanent Faculty Member of several prestigious international Ear courses for the last two decades and also lecture and teach advanced surgical skills in Europe, North and South America. In order to facilitate surgical education and improve results, together with a French colleague in 2003, I conceived of and is currently Vice President of the LION Foundation www.lion-web.org The Live Otolaryngology Network brings together the best ENT surgeons in the world in order to promote training and share expertise by worldwide transmission of live surgery and “real time” discussion with operating surgeons. I was awarded the rare and prestigious NHS Clinical Excellence (CEA) Gold Award in 2006 which was revalidated and renewed by the ACCEA in 2011 in recognition of sustained clinical, educational and research contribution. UK peer elected to represent the UK and Eire in Europe for three continuous terms of office, from 2004-2014, I am now an Executive Officer of CEORL-HNS which has helped establish as pan European ENT educational body with a current membership of over 50 thousand ENT colleagues. I sit on the Presidential Council and is elected Treasurer of the organisation. Previous roles include Specialist Advisory Committee Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Council Member ENT-UK, Council Member the British Society of Otology, President of YCOHNS and a Government invited appointment to The Hearing Aid Council. I am committed to teaching and sharing expertise between different specialties. In 2003, I founded and co-organised an annual international course aimed at improving patient focussed clinical service by fostering increased awareness and cooperation between hospital Consultants, GPs and NHS Managers. Now about to celebrate its 14th year it has evolved to focus on ENT and associated specialties.
