I have a specialist interest in all aspects of trauma orthopaedics. My elective interests are arthroscopic surgery and sports injuries. I have ongoing research projects in trauma surgery and aspects of the prevention of osteoarthritis.

This is one of the busiest trauma units in the country taking victims of trauma from a wide area via the air ambulance. We treat all aspects of trauma running two operating lists everyday and fracture clinics everyday. The treatment of trauma victims within our trust is through a consultant led service. We take tertiary referrals from all the surrounding district general hospitals as we undertake the treatment of all complex trauma cases. The trust is now a teaching hospital and has an attached medical school. We have regular visiting surgeons from around the world.

Medico-legal Practice

I am a NHS consultant with an active interest in the treatment of trauma. I have a doctorate degree based on trauma research. I am widely published in peer-reviewed journals on all aspects of orthopaedics and trauma.

I have undertaken the preparation of medical reports for the last 6 years initially as a specialist registrar and now as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon. I now prepare over 200 reports a year for the defendant, claimant and as a joint instruction. I have attended a number of medico legal training courses. Photographic evidence is provided with reports if it is felt to be helpful.

I will see clients at the above address at the request of the instructing parties. Most appointments are arranged within four weeks, urgent appointments can be accommodated and appointments in the evenings or on a Saturday can be arranged. All reports are completed within 10 working days once all the records are available (often within five). A block appointment system is in place for instructing parties who require this. Urgent report requests can be sent via E-mail preceding the actual written report if requested.
