After medical training and junior appointments in and around
Leeds, I joined the Yorkshire Deanery Orthopaedics and Trauma SpR
training programme. As senior SpR, my training was directed towards
Upper Limb and Hand Surgery. My final year as SpR was spent at
Wrightington Hospital in Lancashire, a Centre of Excellence for
Upper Limb Surgery. This unit headed by Prof JK Stanley is a
tertiary referral centre for upper limb and hand elective and
trauma cases. I was appointed to CDDFT in February 2007. I am keen
to continue the evolution of a dedicated Upper Limb Service within
the Trust and welcome Upper Limb referrals from within and outside
the Trust and its catchment.

ever and they were brilliant with me and I can't thank them enough
- could you please pass on my sincere thanks.'
