Personal profile

I am married with three children with whom I spend most of my time when not at work. The main family interest is in Music and Performance - to which I am exposed on a regular basis. After leaving the Wirral at age 16 I returned to undertake my specialist orthopaedic training in the Mersey region and have lived there since. I was a keen rugby player in the past, captaining school, regional and University teams and playing at county level. I now keep fit running. I run a half marathon distance each week, with the occasional Marathon thrown in.
