I studied Medicine at St. Andrews and Manchester Universities. I trained in Anaesthesia in the North West and was appointed to South Manchester as a Consultant Anaesthetist in 1997 in both adult and paediatric practice. I am very experienced in anaesthesia for all aspects of anaesthesia for ENT surgery in both adults and children. I have particular expertise in the management of challenging airways associated with head and neck cancer. I also have over 20 years experience in providing regional anaesthesia to replace or augment general anaesthesia. The development of the place of ultrasound has transformed regional anaesthesia and this has been a very useful tool for me and has been the bedrock of my regional anaesthesia practice for many years. My ability at regional blocks has been a significant part of my practice in orthopaedic and plastic surgery. I enjoy hill walking, spending time with my family and watching Manchester City (when they win).
