After undergraduate training at St Thomas' Hospital Medical School, I trained in general and colorectal surgery in North West London. I carried research into benign anal disease at St Mark's Hospital (MD 2003).
I was appointed as Colorectal Surgeon at Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust in 2005. I carry out private practice at the Nuffield Health Shrewsbury Hospital.
I have a clinical practice across most areas of colorectal surgery including colonoscopy, laparoscopic and open colorectal surgery, bowel cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and anal surgery.
Since 2010, have been involved in quality improvement and medical management. I am currently Group Medical Director for Scheduled Care at Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust and a Generation Q Fellow at the Health Foundation
