Biography

I initially trained at Southampton University, and then worked for the Royal Navy from 2001 before becoming a GP in 2011.

I served in the Royal Naval Medical Service for 18 years and have worked alongside Military Aviators both at sea and ashore. I transferred, as a Surgeon Commander, into the Royal Navy Reserves in February 2016.  I have since become a CAA AME and GP Partner at Swan Medical Group. I extended my privileges to carry out Class 1 medicals as of March 2018.

I have an interest in flying and hope to complete my own training soon.  I look forward to working  as a CAA AME from both Swan Surgery in Petersfield and Goodwood Aerodrome, Chichester.

    Cancellation Policy

    Our goal is to provide a high quality and efficient service. In order to do so we have had to implement an appointment/cancellation policy. We reserve the right to charge for the medical service booked as unfortunately there have been a number of occasions where people have failed to attend appointments without notice of cancellation.

    If it is necessary to cancel your appointment please contact us at least 24 hours before your appointment is due. This enables us to schedule another client and in turn, maintains a higher availability of services for you, as well as others. Short notice cancellations (i.e. offering less than 24 hours notice) or failure to attend a booked appointment will incur the full fee of the cost of the medical service booked.

    Your co-operation with the above is greatly appreciated. Please call on: 01730 264011 if you need to cancel your appointment.
