Andrew Michell is a lead consultant neurophysiologist and started at CUH in November 2009. Since then he has not only built the team, but also introduced new services.

As if running and developing a department, training registrars and supporting physiologists is not enough, Andrew is very active in research with many projects and innovations over the years.

Andrew is part of the glue that makes the clinical neurosciences department at CUH a great place to work, a great place to be treated and great place to learn.

This is reflected in the winning nomination; extracts of which told us:

Andrew has re-built the trust and communication in our team, with bucket loads of positivity, humour, kindness and an incredible amount of hard work. His door is always open not only to every member of our team, but also the wider multi-disciplinary team. I feel incredibly lucky to work within a team led by such an inspirational individual.
