Profile statement

I am an Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in complex primary and revision hip arthroplasty. I have been a Consultant for just over 2 years. I am continually learning and trying to be a better doctor, surgeon, patient advocate and husband.

I am happy to listen and have any conversation but especially about the pressures of training and practicing whilst the world outside of work seems like a complete mess. I have experience of feeling like you are juggling (and probably dropping!) multiple spinning plates at any one time whilst also not feeling like I could share what I was going through with the majority of my colleagues.

I would be happy to chat (offer mentorship) over the phone or over Zoom/Teams. I would be happy to meet in person for a cuppa or a beer/wine/whiskey (delete as applicable) once we are able to (geographical restrictions do apply)!
