Consultant Anaesthetists

I am an Anaesthetic Consultant with a specialist interest in bariatric surgery. I also have keen interests in Thoracic anaesthesia, Upper GI surgery, and the provision of emergency anaesthesia and surgery. I am a supporter of the trend towards enhanced recovery, as I feel this approach amalgamates the processes associated with each admission increasing efficiency and streamlining the patient journey through the hospital.

I also find myself closely involved in the perioperative care of a wide range of acutely unwell and/or complicated surgical patients, being one of the group of anaesthetists responsible for the Stepdown unit at Royal Derby Hospitals.

My outside interests include running (downhill), Cycling (downhill) and swimming (downhill), and am looking for a triathlon that will incorporate my style. I also compete in the annual “tough guy” race each January.
