I am a Consultant Colorectal & General Surgeon at the Royal United Hospital, Bath. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Leeds, qualifying in 1996. I undertook my basic surgical training in Hull, Canterbury and London before taking up a research post at St George's Hospital, London where I completed a thesis on the effects of omega-3 fatty acids on the colon in patients with colorectal polyps.

I presented my results at the Digestive Disease Week meeting in Chicago, USA in 2005. Higher surgical training was undertaken in East Anglia, including Addenbrooke's Hospital and the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital. I was awarded his certificate of completion of training in 2011. I then undertook a 1 year Surgical Fellowship at Auckland City Hospital, where I received further advanced training in laparoscopic colorectal surgery and the assessment and management of complex pelvic floor disorders. This also enabled my family and I to explore New Zealand with all its spectacular scenary, friendly people and vineyards!

I was appointed as a Consultant Colorectal and General Surgeon at the RUH in October 2012. I am committed to providing the best possible care for my patients and always take time to explain any proposed treatment as clearly as possible.
