Media appearances

“Operation Ouch” Series 6 Episode “Super Sensory Neurons” Children’s BBC. Treating clinician at Sheffield Children’s Hospital attending to a young girl with a fractured wrist

University of Nottingham Marketing. Messaged from several friends that I was featured on banners around campus and the University twitter feed with this picture taken at the 2020 graduation ceremony. The big grin accompanies the feeling of immense relief of being awarded a PHd done part time as a later years trainee and early years Consultant (possibly the worst time to do a PHd alongside a busy clinical career).
