Profile statement

I have been a consultant Orthopaedic surgeon in a DGH for over 10 years. I have always had an interest in training and education. I am the ADME for quality and leadership. I have a strong belief in work life balance and continue to try and compete in triathlon and running. I enjoy surfing but with limited expectations and ability!

I am happy to mentor junior colleagues who may be facing challenges in their training and career decisions. I can offer mentorship via telephone, Zoom calls or over a coffee.
