I trained at Manchester University and after qualifying worked as a House Officer at Manchester Royal Infirmary and subsequently a Lecturer in Anatomy at the Medical School. My neurosurgical training has been in the North Western Deanery between Manchester and Preston followed by my paediatric fellowships in North America. I undertook a research/clinical fellowship at Harvard Medical School/Boston Children’s Hospital. Following this I undertook a further fellowship in paediatric neurosurgery at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. Both these units are recognised as world leading centres for paediatric neurosurgery.
I have been back in the UK as a consultant neurosurgeon since 2005. The primary area of my practice is children’s neurosurgery. Because I am a neurooncology (brain tumour) specialist I also do some adult brain and spinal tumour operations. My other role is the Training Programme Director for Neurosurgery in the North Western Deanery. The Deanery is one of the largest in the UK and I am responsible for all the neurosurgical trainees and the training provided to them. In addition I am a member of the national Specialist Advisory Committee in Neurosurgery and a member of the Neurosurgery National Selection Board, being the lead clinician for the development of surgical skills assessment nationally. I am a member of the Intercollegiate Specialty Examination Board in Neurosurgery question writing group. I am a member of the British Paediatric Neurosurgery Group (BPNG) and also a member of both the research and training committees of the BPNG.
