MBChB, MRCP, FCICM, Hawke's Bay DHB, Hastings, NZ
Undergraduate training in Aberdeen (UK) at end of the last millennium, then Bart’s and The London to train in General Medicine. Completed MRCP and moved to Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand for 6 months in 2003. Indecisiveness between Cardiology, Renal or Endocrine speciality training led to a period in Intensive Care. Turned to the dark side by joining College Intensive Care Medicine. Advanced training completed in Auckland. Moved back to the Hawke’s Bay in 2010 and became Head of Department in 2012. Interests include mechanical ventilation, critical care ultrasonography, quantitative acid-base analysis and Goals of Care. Work commitments have cured an oenophilic obsession resulting in a rather large wine collection.
