Manchester University Foundation Trust

Register of Interests

  • Director of Medical Education, Central Manchester Foundation Trust.
  • Primary Examiner, Vice Chair Primary RCoA Examination, Member Examinations Committee.


I have been a Consultant Anaesthetist with a special interest in Cardiac Anaesthesia and Intensive Care since 1998.

During my time as a consultant I have been passionate as a trainer and educator, initially as educational supervisor and college tutor for anaesthetic trainees and more recently broadening my training experience as first associate Foundation Programme director, associate director of medical education and now director of medical Education. I have been a primary examiner for ten years and am currently vice chair of that examination.

In all those roles I have worked to ensure that training remains at the highest standard allowing the development of an anaesthetic and medical workforce, of the quality, able to deliver world class patient care.

We live in changing times in medicine with financial pressures greater than ever before. We are likely to see training and workforce changes that may considerably alter the landscape in which we all will practice. I intend to work on your behalf, and with colleagues, to ensure, within the RCoA strategy 2016-21 and beyond, that standards of anaesthetic practice and training remain outstanding, but also fit to provide the highest quality patient care in a changing environment.
