I was appointed as a

Bristol Eye Hospital in 2001.
In the year 2000 I was awarded The Royal College of
Ophthalmologists Keeler Scholarship and underwent advanced subspecialty
training in Vitreoretinal surgery under the auspices of Professor David
McLeod in Manchester Royal Eye Hospital.
Between 1995 and 2000 I underwent higher surgical
training in Nottingham University Hospital as the Clinical Lecturer. During
this time I also undertook a higher medical degree (MD) researching the
resistance of the human eye to infection, and won The Founderís Cup at the
Oxford Ophthalmological Congress in 1999 and 2000 for this work.
I underwent basic surgical training in
Ophthalmology in Aberdeen and was admitted as a Fellow of The Royal College
of Ophthalmologists of London in 1995.
