Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon
Goring Hall Hospital
I was born in Nairobi, Kenya and educated at boarding school in England. In 1980 I graduated from Manchester University Medical School. My Ophthalmology training was as a Senior House Officer at Sheffield and Southampton, and as a Registrar in Manchester. My Senior Registrar training at Leeds 1991-94 followed a research fellowship with the Medical Research Council in Jamaica, studying sickle cell eye disease. I completed my Higher Surgical Training in Ophthalmology in 1993 and in the same year was a Fellow at the Lions Eye Institute in Perth, Western Australia.
I was appointed Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon in 1994 at Worthing Hospital and St Richard’s Hospital, where I worked until 2013. From 1994 – 97 I was College Tutor and from 1997 to 2000 Clinical Director of the head and neck unit. I am an examiner for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. My special interests include small incision cataract surgery, oculo-plastics (lid surgery) and glaucoma as well as general ophthalmology.
I also prepare medico-legal reports for both personal injury and medical negligence claims.
My private practice is based at Goring Hall Hospital where I consult and operate.
