MBBS, BSc(Hons) Ophthalmic Optics, FRCOphth
General Medical Council Number: 3549830
Having qualified as a doctor I worked and studied at Cheltenham General Hospital and the highly rated Western Eye Hospital, St Mary’s, London, becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, London in 1995.
I was fortunate to spend all 5yrs of my higher surgical training at the world famous Moorfields Eye Hospital, London. I finished at Moorfields by completing a 12 month Fellowship in Oculoplastic surgery, and therefore have a special interest and expertise in conditions affecting the orbit (eye socket), eyelids and tear ducts.
Training the next generation of doctors has been a priority and I have a Certificate in Medical Education. For many years I have had an active teaching role in the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, London. Since 2005 I have been a Microsurgical Skills Tutor, regularly training junior surgeons in the principles of operating using delicate instruments, fine sutures and microscopes. I run a hugely successful international Optics Course for doctors specialising in Ophthalmology and is also an Examiner for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists.
Working and training in prestigious eye units allowed me to be actively involved in various research projects and I have kept up clinically based studies since becoming a substantive Consultant. I regularly attend and participate in National and International Ophthalmology meetings. I have presented widely and have numerous publications in peer review eye journals.
I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, member of the British Medical Association, member of the British Oculoplastic Surgeons Society and member of the European Society of Ophthalmic, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons.
