Mr Gareth Tervit

Consultant General and Vascular Surgeon

I completed my basic surgical training in Scotland. From July 1996 until February 2002 I worked in Wales as specialist registrar in both general and vascular surgery. I then spent a year as a fellow in vascular and transplant surgery at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, Australia and lecturer in vascular surgery at the University of Queensland.

On return from Australia I resumed my post as specialist registrar in vascular surgery at Morriston Hospital in Swansea before my recent appointment as consulting surgeon in vascular and general surgery at the University Hospital of North Durham.

I currently have a busy general, thyroid and vascular surgical practice.
