  • Biography

    Originally from Newcastle, I undertook my medical training at Edinburgh University, qualifying in 2001.  I developed an interest in Emergency Medicine whilst at medical school, which was consolidated during my first SHO job at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.  Deciding to pursue a surgical route into the specialty, I returned to my native northeast in 2002, rotating through a number of northeast Hospitals as a surgical trainee, before commencing registrar training in 2006.  I was appointed as a Consultant in Emergency Medicine at the Royal Victoria infirmary in 2010.

    During my time at the RVI I have enjoyed being the Emergency Department Trauma Lead and in particular working with colleagues to set up the RVI as a Regional Major Trauma Centre.  I also have a keen interest in medical education and from 2013-2016 was the Departmental Educational Lead and College Tutor.  I continue to direct and teach on Advance Life Support, European Trauma and Trauma Simulation courses, and am an Honorary Clinical Lecturer at Newcastle University.

    In May 2017 I took over as Head of Department.
