Whilst I consider my core background to be that of a dedicated vascular surgeon, I believe that major patient benefits come from improving the system within which clinicians’ practice.  With over 25 years of clinical experience, I grew a large tertiary care practice in vascular surgery in Greater Manchester and undertook many senior clinical leadership and service transformation roles in UK and more recently in UAE.  I was appointed consultant vascular surgeon at University Hospital South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UHSM) in 2006.  I became clinical director in 2009 and implemented new clinical services and helped with the development of the Vascular Society of Great Britain and Ireland’s document “The Provision of Services for Patients with Vascular Disease 2012” which guided the reconfiguration of regional vascular services.   I was appointed deputy medical director of strategy at UHSM in 2012 at a time when major trauma centres in Greater Manchester were being reviewed as well as many specialised services.  Following a short sabbatical to UAE to set up and develop vascular services, I returned to Greater Manchester in 2014 as Medical Director of a large service transformation programme involving 4 regional acute hospitals, one of which was in “special measures” and with the region being designated by NHS England, Monitor and NHS TDA as a “challenged local health economy”. My role involved working with teams from a number of regional and national transformation programmes and consulting groups including McKinsey, Deloitte and Greater Manchester’s “Healthier Together” programme.  


I strengthened my practical experience in healthcare leadership over the past 5 years by completing a Global Masters in Business Administration (MBA) through the University of Manchester and was awarded a MBA with merit in 2018.  During this time, I took on another exciting opportunity to work in UAE and was appointed to the role of chair of surgery within SEHA, a large government acute hospital in Abu Dhabi Emirate and more recently as clinical lead for SEHA Transformation Programme.  SEHA is UAEs largest governmental healthcare network with 12 hospitals and 60 primary and ambulatory healthcare clinics. It employs over 17,000 staff including over 3400 physicians.  It has undergone many changes in the last 5 years including a merger of two its large acute hospitals.  I am currently leading a corporate taskforce for developing and implementing, de-novo, a consultant job planning policy and leading a SEHA wide transformation project to radically change how surgical services are delivered across the entire sector as part of the surgical excellence taskforce.  


At the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, I was assigned to the role of operational clinical lead for the regional Covid-19 hospital and lead teams to transform and run large Covid-19 isolation units including a 1300 bedded university accommodation, a 210 bedded 4* hotel and a long-term rehabilitation centre.  



I consider evidence-based clinical practice integral to developing and maintaining world class services and have published over 100 articles (61 original papers and reviews) in peer reviewed journals; I am editor of both the Oxford Handbook of Key Clinical Evidence and Oxford handbook of Surgical Guidelines and have developed and implemented several accredited educational and postgraduate academic programmes in both UK and UAE.
