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 and personal ultrasound scan service.  I also report MRI and CT scans, which can be arranged via Cobalt Health in Cheltenham, on request from your health professional.
