I am an ICU and Perioperative medicine Consultant in Torbay and South Devon. I wanted to work at Torbay because of the pioneering work of Mike Swart and John Carlisle. My main interest is in promoting physical activity before surgery and preoperative exercise programmes.
Recently I have developed the service in South Devon by recruiting fitness instructors to work with the shared decision making clinic. Following CPET testing they assess patients and design bespoke training programmes.
In my spare time I enjoy distance running. I use my own CPET data to design my training programmes and have recorded PBs at both Half and Full Marathon in the last year.
