Consultant Anaesthetist at Homerton University Hospital since 2010 in the wild east of London (Hackney to be more precise), where i am lead for Orthopaedics & Trauma.
I qualified from the University of Birmingham, followed by house jobs, emergency medicine (back when it was called A+E) and basic anaesthetic training in the West Midlands. I decided at this point to return to the big smoke, and my specialist registrar training was on the Royal Free / UCLH rotation. This was followed by a very rewarding stint working for Medecins Sans Frontieres (which i highly recommend).
I completed a fellowship in Medical Simulation at Barts and the London in 2008, and teach on simulation courses across all levels, specialties and disciplines. I facilitate on Train the Trainers courses, and run a STELI-funded Faculty Development Day at the Homerton suitable for anyone who wants to get started in Medical Simulation (we have our own shiny Simulation Suite in the Education Centre at the Homerton, opened in 2010).
My interest in Ultrasound & Regional Anaesthesia come from completing a fellowship in Toronto under Dr Colin McCartney at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Whilst in Canada and since returning, i regularly teach on Ultrasound Courses. I am very happy to be part of the LSORA fold, helping drive Ultrasound & Regional Anaesthesia forward in London and beyond, matching the best out there in the world.
