Special Clinical Interest(s)
My current research interests include cultural and societal influences on the doctor patient relationship and management of the older frail surgical patient.
I have contributed to the successful implementation of a One Stop Clinic/Prehabilitation and Enhanced Recovery Programs for patients requiring GI resections at Lakes.
I graduated from Glasgow University in 1996 with a MB. ChB, and a B.Sc. (Honours) in gross anatomy. My postgraduate training was under the West of Scotland Higher Surgical Training scheme culminating in CCT in 2009. In the same year I successfully completed an MD thesis on the topic of chronic pain and inguinal hernia repair. I spent a year as a post CCT fellow in New Zealand in 2010.
For the next five years I worked as a consultant surgeon in two large public teaching hospitals in contrasting health care systems, Scotland and Singapore. I have been employed at Lakes DHB since 2016.
I have published regularly throughout my career.
