I am a consultant thoracic surgeon at Wythenshawe Hospital; part of the Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT). I completed a 2-year advanced surgical fellowship at the prestigious Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, USA as well as an observership at the University of Toronto and a robotic / minimally invasive fellowship at James Cook University Hospital prior to being appointed as a Consultant in 2019.

I have an interest in Law and legal studies. I have undergone medico-legal training with Bond Solon (Civil Expert Witness Certificate) as well as with MPS. I have completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Law with Northumbria University Law School and I am currently undertaking a part time law degree (LL.B Hons) at Nottingham Law School. I have also completed mediation training (civil, commercial, and workplace) on a CMC accredited course. I have been doing medico-legal work since 2019 and take instruction from both claimant and defendant.
