I am Associate Medical Director for Quality Improvement at Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS trust and continue working as a consultant colorectal surgeon. I am clinical lead for the trust for Sepsis and Acute Kidney Injury and have recently set up the Lower GI Straight to test service for 2 WW in Harlow.
Before moving to PAH I was consultant colorectal surgeon in East London for more than 13 years specialising in treating colorectal cancer, diverticular disease and benign anorectal conditions. I have been Lead Clinician for the colorectal MDT from 2006-2015, Clinical Director for Surgical Services 2008-2013 and was an active member of the Colorectal Pathway Board for the Integrated Cancer System London Cancer.
I have a particular interest in the use of IT in improving access to health care and the use of digital technology to improve the recording of cancer data.
