  • Personal Profile
  • Outside the operating theatre, I spend my free time with my family. I have three young sons, and we spend most of our time outdoors. I am a keen swimmer and cyclist, and the excellent weather in Southend allows me to practise sport, or go out to the beach or the woods with the family when I am not working. We travel to the French Alps twice a year, skiing in winter, and walking, climbing and enjoying the mountains in summer.
