Professional profile

I have worked as a consultant surgeon at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital since 2014. I qualified from Leeds University Medical School in 1997 and completed my basic surgical training with the Yorkshire School of Surgery. I completed a two-year doctorate in medicine (MD) before entering higher surgical training in Yorkshire and in the North East of England. In the final stages of this training I worked in one of the largest oesophago-gastric cancer centres in Europe at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle upon Tyne under the supervision of Professor S M Griffin OBE (2010-2013). I completed my overseas fellowship in advanced laparoscopic surgery with Prof. David Watson at Flinders Medical Centre, Adelaide, Australia (2013-2014). This has enabled me to develop a wide surgical experience within both benign and malignant diseases of the upper gastrointestinal tract. I am a consultant on the busy emergency rota for both general and upper GI surgery.
