Background / Professional Profile:

I qualified from the Middlesex Hospital, and, apart from a brief spell as a House Officer in the West Midlands, have spent all of my medical career in London. I took a rather leisurely course to A&E, passing through a wide range of specialities on my way. Of note are plastic surgery and anaesthetics, both of which are great careers in their own right.

I also spent 9 glorious months as a HEMS flight doctor, during which time I developed my interest in pre-hospital care. I have been an active member of the British Association for Immediate Care, a voluntary organisation caring for trauma victims in the pre-hospital arena, for the past 6 years, and am Treasurer for the London branch.

Personal profile:

I have three sons, one step son and a step daughter, so my spare time is taken up as a taxi-driver and homework monitor. I do find time for my passion for photography, although most of my photographs have one child or other somewhere in them.

My other interest, that of computers, means that I get to play lots of computer games, in the guise of helping the kids with their homework.
