"The Spire team are professional and it is a pleasure developing the service with them."
I graduated from the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan Nigeria in January 1999. After graduation, I worked as a General Practitioner for a few years before undergoing Postgraduate Surgical training. I obtained the membership for the Royal College of Surgeons in 2007. Since then, I have had a rich medical career with experience spanning multiple hospital specialties.
I completed my General Practice Specialty training in Newcastle in 2016 and I have been practicing as a sessional GP in Newcastle. In addition, I work in the Bupa wellness centre offering health screening and lifestyle advice. In 2017, I obtained a Diploma in Sports and Exercise Medicine from the University of Bath. I now work with the Defence Medical Services at the Catterick Regional Rehabilitation Unit in North Yorkshire as a Sports and Exercise Medicine physician with experience treating elite sports injuries.
I am very passionate about telemedicine and I have worked with the two major telemedicine providers in the UK. Currently i am working alongside stakeholders to develop a telemedicine service for the NHS.
