I was accredited in 2001 and have been a Consultant in Intensive Care Medicine since 2002. Following qualification I was lucky enough to be trained first in Medicine at Nottingham's Queen's Medical centre where I spent 3 years, completing the excellent and sought after though extremely busy medical rotation, and then worked for six months each in ICU and A&E. Having moved to London I have been extraordinarily fortunate to have then been trained at amongst others St Mary's, Charing Cross, Hammersmith, the Royal Marsden, Queen Square, and the Royal Brompton Hospitals. I took up my post in ICU at St Mary's, initially also as a Cardiac Anaesthetist, though I have chosen to concentrate exclusively on Intensive Care since 2007.
Most recently I have been heavily involved in the implementation of ICIP which we have used to create one of the world's very few paperless ICU's. I was lucky enough to have a background of having worked as a Computer programmer in the mid 1980s, although the learning curve has been nigh vertical.
In my private practice I am pleased to say that we acheive excellent results at the Wellington and can care for patients who need almost all forms of support. We have excellent neurosurgical/neurological results, due in no small measure to the excellence of the Neurological rehabilitaion centre at the Wellington.
