Having qualified as a G.P in 1969 at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, I spent my first few years working in a mission hospital in the Northern Transvaal. There I was trained in anaesthetics and gained much experience in tropical medicine, tuberculosis, occupational health, surgery, obstetrics, paediatrics and geriatrics. During this time I developed a keen interest in collecting and studying indigenous trees as I have always had a love for botany
In 1971 moved to the Western Cape and worked in Paarl hospital. There I did 20 years of orthopaedic anaesthetic work involving hip replacements, trauma, hand and foot surgery and general orthopaedic work. During this time I also started my own private practice in Wellington, South Africa, doing anaesthetics for my own patients for general surgery, ENT and obstetrics.
For 5 years I worked in a deprived township area where I did a great deal of community work. I also worked sessions at the local hospital in paediatrics and A+E. My final 2 years in South Africa were spent in Alexander Bay, which is a diamond mining town with its own, very remote hospital. There I was the hospital superintendant and was again involved in emergency medicine, surgery, anaesthetics, ENT, obstetrics and management. In 2001 we immigrated to England, and having passed all the entry requirements to allow me to practice medicine in the U.K.
I joined the Jubilee Medical Group as a partner and during my time here I gained a special interest qualification in ENT in London. After living here for 5 years we gained our status as fully fledged British citizens.
I am happily married with 6 children, the oldest 4 of which are all married with children of their own. We are settled in the country and have really become well established here with many wonderful friends. I love cycling especially in all weathers as we can expect and usually cycle daily to work. Reading, walking, horse riding and local church are all things I enjoy doing especially with my family. I also have a great interest in insects, plants, gardening and D.I.Y — There’s not always enough time!!
