Personal Profile

Consultant Musculoskeletal Radiologist - MBChB, BSc (Hons), MRCP, FRCR

Specialist in Sports, Orthopaedic, Rheumatological & Interventional Radiology


9 years experience working with Orthopaedic Surgeons, Sports Physicians, Physiotherapists,Osteopaths, Chiropractors & Podiatrists,  including working with semi-professional sports people and Swindon Town Football Club players.


Background

I first became interested in Radiology whilst observing CT scanning on a surgical elective in Newfoundland, Canada in 1998.  I worked as a clinician in Edinburgh and Sydney, Australia, returning to the UK in 2004 to start training in Radiology.  I developed an interest in musculoskeletal radiology early on, which complemented my sporting interests.  After completing a specialist musculoskeletal radiology fellowship at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford, I worked as a consultant radiologist at the Great Western Hospital in Swindon, which has excellent orthopaedic and radiology departments. 


More recently I have been working at Cirencester Hospital, and for GP Care throughout Gloucestershire.  Whilst working for GP Care, many patients commented that they liked having ultrasound scans more locally.  This gave me the idea of trying to provide a more local specialist musculoskeletal MRI reporting service.  With the help of Cobalt Health in Cheltenham, who are providing the MRI scanner and PACS (picture archiving and communication system), this service started in February 2017.  Hopefully it will continue and there are plans to take the scanner up to Moreton-in-Marsh in the future.
