I was appointed as a Consultant General Surgeon in October 2002. My principal subspeciality interests are oncoplastic breast and general paediatric surgery. A large proportion of my workload involves immediate and delayed breast reconstruction. I am on the general surgery on-call rota. I trained in general surgery and breast surgery in the West Midlands and in Cardiff. I am a member of the British Association of Surgical Oncology and the Surgical and Academic Reseach Society. I am involved in medical education and am examiner for the University of Warwick Medical School.
