Personal profile

Nick retired from Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust in September 2020 at age 60. Nick was a consultant for nearly 26 years and participated on the on call rota up to retirement. He was heavily involved in treating victims of the Manchester Arena bombing and patients during the first Covid-19 Pandemic. 

Nick treats private patients at The Alexandra Hospital only. He does not believe it possible to provide expert care to in-patients within more than one private hospital at a time.


Nick trained in the North West of England, Vancouver Canada and at two major trauma centres (Essen and Stuttgart) in Germany. He considers working in overseas centres of excellence to be an essential component of surgical training.

Current Practice

Nick’s main clinical interests include lower limb joint replacement (hip and knee), arthroscopic knee surgery and lower limb sports injuries. His nationally published audit data for hip and knee replacement can be seen at

He regularly attends the Advances and Masters Trauma courses in Davos, Switzerland in order to keep up-to-date with the latest developments in trauma care, and to integrate with international experts in trauma care.


Nick is the immediate past Chairman of the Medical Advisory Committeeof the Alexandra Hospital’s Medical Advisory Committee. This has provided him with tremendous insight and experience in clinical governance. He is also involved in training Orthopaedic Surgeons, Nurses and Physiotherapists.

Nick recognises the importance of a good work / life balance. He is a keen runner and regularly competes in UK and European ultra marathon events.

He plays regular tennis. As an elite athlete he can empathise with other athletes, and can provide excellent directed care to athletes suffering overuse and acute sporting injuries of the lower limb.
