From the consultant


It is a great privilege to be involved in the compassionate delivery of patient-centred and clinically effective care benefitting the ocular health of my patients; I am fortunate to be in this unique and fascinating vocation.

Accolades


For over 20 years as a Consultant, I have applied my energies to providing the highest possible quality in both my private and NHS practices. I have done so without allowing my commitment in either sector to reduce the excellence of service I offer to the other, however different are the individual models of care.

I have published over 100 articles and books / book chapters (mostly in peer-reviewed journals). In addition I am active in national teaching and training programs, including a post-graduate diploma course for GPs and optometrists.

I have been honoured by colleagues who have elected me to serve in a number of leadership positions; I believe that I was highly effective in fulfilling my duties.
