I was brought up in a medical family in Northern Ireland and attended Campbell College in Belfast. I studied medicine at Bristol University and was always intent on a surgical career. I am grateful to my close friend and colleague, Masoud Teimory, who convinced me to take up ophthalmology.
Junior posts were completed at Bristol University, St Thomas Hospital and Bristol Eye Hospital. I spent a period of five years as a registrar in Aberdeen with Professor John Forrester with a fellowship year in 1995 at Royal Perth Hospital Western Australia working with Dr Ian McAllister.
I have been a consultant in Gloucestershire since 1997 and have steadily built up my cataract and retinal surgery practice since that time. In more recent years I have been closely involved in developing efficient and award-winning services for the NHS with Newmedica.
