During his early training in obstetrics and gynaecology he worked at some of London's most prestigious hospitals including Queen Charlotte’s and the Royal Free Hospitals before embarking on specialist registrar training in the South West region including teaching hospitals in Southampton, Poole, Bournemouth, Portsmouth and Swindon. During training, Mr Emmanuel undertook a fellowship of advanced training in London and Australia in the field of laparoscopic surgery, early pregnancy assessment, fertility surgery and hysteroscopic uterine surgery. On completion of training, Mr Emmanuel was appointed as a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist in Birmingham in 2007 where he was lead for laparoscopic surgery, endometriosis, emergency gynaecology and early pregnancy.

He was also lead for the Benenden Fertility Centre and undertook all aspects of fertility care.
