Following this, I completed Ethicon sponsored laparoscopic fellowship at St Mark's Hospital and training in locally advanced rectal cancers including pelvic exenteration.

I am a keen chess and cricket player. Most of my free time is spent looking after my children and their education as I have two children of school age. I quite enjoy armature cooking and finds cycling and running relaxing after a busy period at work.
