This included time at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford, the Pulvertaft Hand Centre in Derby, and the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, Australia. He returned to the Pulvertaft Centre as a locum consultant in 2009 for six months, before moving to Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals, where he has worked since then.
