Professional profile

Having graduated from Newcastle University in 1981 I remained in the north east, undertaking first my basic surgical training and subsequently my orthopaedic and trauma training, before spending a year in Adelaide, South Australia where I gained experience in knee ligament reconstruction surgery. I returned to the UK in 1993 to take up a consultant post in Durham where I have remained since. From 2005, I have been lead clinician in trauma and orthopaedics at County Durham and the Darlington NHS Trust.

My elective practice initially comprised general orthopaedics with an interest in soft-tissue knee surgery and whilst this has subsequently developed almost exclusively to knee surgery of all types, I continues to have a general trauma interest.

I have had an interest in surgical education and am currently chair of the specialist training committee for trauma and orthopaedics and am quality management lead in the School of Surgery in the Northern Deanery. I am an examiner at MRCS level and also Regional Specialty College Adviser in trauma and orthopaedics.

Personal Profile

My sporting interests outside medicine include skiing, mountaineering, running and occasionally golf. I have an interest in history, art and travel, am an avid reader of both fiction and non-fiction and I am an enthusiastic cook, though more in the style of Keith Floyd than Heston Blumenthal!
