I trained at Southampton Medical School before undertaking my anaesthetic training in Reading, London, Bermuda and Southampton.

During my consultant post at Southampton I have variously specialised in paediatric anaesthesia, management and trauma, but now focus on orthopaedics, trauma and pre-hospital emergency medicine with the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.

I also specialise in medico-legal expert reporting and I am an expert advisor to the National Crime Agency.
