Professional profile:

Having studied at Aberdeen University, I did most of my training throughout Scotland apart from a brief spell in Bristol. Laterally training in Edinburgh prior to becoming a consultant at the Western General Hospital in 1994.

During my years as a consultant I have strongly supported the move towards sub-specialty interests in surgery. As the lead clinician in surgery at the Western General Hospital, I was one of the principal clinicians involved in the unique changes to surgical practice in Edinburgh, culminating in the establishment of the Lothian Colorectal Unit at the Western General Hospital. We are now the largest specialist colorectal surgery unit in the UK. The unit serves a population of over 750,000 and deals with all elective and emergency colorectal surgical admissions in Lothian.
