Personal profile

Mr David Andrew Evans studied Medicine at the University of London and Middlesex Hospital Medical School, qualifying in 1980. His general surgical training took place in London, Sheffield and Manchester.

He spent a further two years training in paediatric surgery at Alder Hey Hospital and Birmingham Children's Hospital. In 1986 he took up a research post at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston. Work carried out at that time led to his M.D. thesis. He was appointed Consultant surgeon at Blackburn Royal Infirmary in 1995. The hospital subsequently merged with Burnley General Hospital to become East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust.

Mr Evans practices as a general surgeon and has two subspecialty interests: coloproctology (surgery of the lower bowel, rectum and anus) and paediatric surgery. Between 2000 and 2008 he was the Clinical Director for Surgery at East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust and has been the lead clinician for paediatric surgery for the past 22 years.

He has been a Tutor at the Royal College of Surgeons of England and is an Honorary Associate Professor at the American University of the Caribbean.
