Honorary Clinical Research Fellow







Charing Cross HospitalCharing Cross Campus





I graduated from The University of Liverpool Medical School and have completed basic and higher surgical training schemes in Trauma and Orthopaedic surgery. I have completed Membership and Fellowship exams with the Royal College of Surgeons, and on the GMC Specialist register as a trauma and orthopaedic specialist.

I have completed further super specialty training in Wrightington Hospital in the filed of revision (re-do) hip and knee replacement surgery. 

I have also taken two years out of clinical practice to develop research sills under the tutelage of Prof. Justin Cobb at Imperial College London and gained a Medical Doctorate in research (MD res).

My main areas of research include the development and assessment of implants and technology associated with hip and knee surgical devices. The aim of which is to increase patient experience and function, whilst reducing risks of complications. 

Currently I am a primary and revision hip and knee consultant working in Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust, but am privileged to be able to maintain research and personal links with the MSK lab at Imperial College London.
