WHO AM I?

My experience at executive and board levels of different health systems has helped me deliver high quality surgical care at university, hospital, community and organisational levels. While being an active scientist and technologist, I have helped major investments to support growing businesses irrespective of their size. During my career, I have continued to work as a surgeon in UK, India and many other nations bringing cutting edge surgery to people who need it the most. I am an educator and communicator who had the privilege of leading a 90yr old journal, the British Journal of Urology International, making it one of the most read surgical journals on the web. I have advised the British and other governments and have a strong understanding of international education at university level.
