During surgical training, I found that I was more
interested in the emergencies on the ward than the surgery, so
decided to change my career choice to Accident and Emergency,
spending a year in Australia to do so.
Specialist training in Northern region, then Consultant in
beautiful Abergergavenny in Wales for 5 years. Moved back to be
closer to family.
Favourite part of job: patients the team work and examining for
Least favourite: risk management but it's a huge part of the
'Every aspect of my emergency care was dealt with quickly,
efficiently and professionally with full explanations and
compassion from all staff involved'.
