I completed a six year specialist training programme in Plastic Surgery in the North West working at South Manchester University Hospital and the Christie Hospital, the largest cancer centre in Europe, acquiring skills in breast and skin cancer reconstructive surgery.
I was awarded a further qualification from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (FRCS Plast) and the Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in Plastic Surgery in 2010.
I completed a 12 month specialist breast reconstruction fellowship at City Hospital, Birmingham and subsequently spent a further 6 months on a prestigious fellowship on microsurgical reconstruction of the breast at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg, Canada, one of the largest centres for microsurgery in North America.
