Trainee Representatives
North London I am currently CT2 in North West London. My first degree was in Geography at the University of St Andrews, I then worked for several years in the Tech industry before applying to Graduate Medicine. I have keen interest in trainee wellbeing and simulation training. Outside of anaesthesia I can be found either at the theatre, spending time with my increasing number of god children, or cooking a mean Shepherd’s pie.
