I have been a Consultant Anaesthetist at Bristol Children’s Hospital since 2000.
For more than 15 years I led the Bristol Paediatric Anaesthesia training programme, and I ran regional and national ‘MEPA-style’ Simulation courses for ODPs and theatre staff.
For the last 4 years I have been an FRCA examiner and a member of APAGBI Council.
