I have been a consultant in ophthalmology at West Suffolk Hospital since 2013 and clinic lead of the department since 2015. I am an experienced cataract surgeon with outcomes exceeding national guidelines and requirements. I also have a sub-speciality interest in glaucoma.
Originally from Kenya, I came to the UK to complete my school education in 1994 before attending the University of Edinburgh for my medical training. Following jobs in Accident and Emergency (Leicester) and Neurology (Leeds), I started my ophthalmology training in Devon (Torbay and Exeter Hospitals). I completed my ophthalmic training with posts at Addenbrooke’s Hospital (Cambridge) and the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital.
Since my appointment, I have worked hard to improve patient experience and care in the eye department. I am particularly proud of the huge amount of work my team and I have put in collaboration with our Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) partners and local optometrists to radically transform how we deliver care in ophthalmology.
I also enjoy teaching and am heavily involved in delivering training to local optometrists in collaboration with the local optical committee, so they are better able to share care with the medical team in looking after eye patients. To support this work, I have completed a Master of Arts (MA) in Medical Education.
