I qualified from St Mary’s Hospital Medical School London in 2000 and moved to Nottingham to undertake Histopathology training in 2002. After deciding this was not the speciality for me, I commenced basic surgical training in Nottingham and Derby, but eventually saw the light and began my GP VTS in Nottingham in 2006!

In 2009, after eighteen months as a qualified GP, I acted upon my enduring interest in medical law and ethics and started work as a medicolegal advisor for the MDU. While undertaking this role, I decided to take my legal interests further, commencing my legal studies at Nottingham Law School in 2011. I obtained my law degree and qualified as a barrister in 2014.

I now work as a part-time locum GP, an out of hours GP for NEMS, a Clinical Governance Committee Member for NEMS, a GP Registrar and 1st / 2nd Year Medical Student Supervisor at NEMS, a LMC Director / Committee Member, an advocate / advisor / representative for the LMC, a GP Fitness to Practice Case Investigator for NHS England, a GP Appraiser for NHS England, and a tutor on the ‘Professionalism, Ethics and Law’ course for first year clinical students at the University of Cambridge School of Medicine; additionally, I am currently studying for a MA in Business Law.

I enjoy spending my spare time with my wife and daughter and family and friends. I also like watching films and stand-up comedy
