Mr Davey was born and raised in Newcastle upon Tyne. His basic medical degree was obtained in Scotland before returning to the North-East to embark on his post-graduate specialist training.
Following completion of his basic surgical training, Mr Davey spent two years in full-time research concerning aspects of endovascular aortic aneurysm repair and was duly awarded his post-graduate degree of Doctor of Medicine (MD). Subsequent progress involved his higher general surgical programme within the hospitals of the Northern Deanery with sub-specialty open vascular training at the Freeman Hospital.
Mr Davey's training was finally completed with a twelve-month dedicated endovascular fellowship in Perth, Western Australia prior to taking up his NHS post as Consultant Vascular & Endovascular Surgeon within the County Durham & Darlington Foundation Trust.
