Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, University Hospital North Durham.

I was brought up in the North West, but have grown to love the North East since moving here 16 years ago. I live in Durham with my wife Lucy and our two young lads. We enjoy getting out on our bikes and into the hills whenever we get the chance.
