Our ophthalmologists

I am a consultant ophthalmic surgeon specialising in cataract surgery and retinal diseases. I trained in centres of excellence in the UK and around the world honing a wide repertoire of medical and surgical skills.

I was admitted as Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists in 2012 and hold the equivalent specialist title from Spain, gained at the University Clinic Hospital of Barcelona. I then undertook two years of highly specialised retina surgery training at the Bristol Eye Hospital and the Sydney Eye Hospital, Australia.

I am a patient safety and care quality officer holding roles dedicated to the improvement and maintenance of quality of care.

I grew up in Lincolnshire and attended school in Stamford, before moving on to the University of Bristol where I studied medicine from 1995-2001, graduating with MBChB (Hons).

I undertook my post-graduate training in ophthalmology at hospitals throughout the south-west of England, and completed this in 2012 when I was admitted as a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (FRCOphth).

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my young family, playing squash, and running cross-country ultramarathons.

I have worked as a consultant ophthalmologist with Newmedica since 2014.
