In 2000 I was appointed director of higher neurosurgical training for the Eastern Deanery; in this capacity I was directly involved in neurosurgical training both at local level and at the Royal College of Surgeons in London. In addition I have been secretary of the British Cervical Spine Society and worked to establish the British Association of Spine Surgeons where I served on the executive until recently.
From 2009-2012 I was clinical director of neurosurgery; I oversaw many changes within the neurosurgical centre and introduced key initiatives including day case spinal surgery.
In 2012 I was elected to the Council of the Society of British Neurological Surgeons.
I was clinical director of neurosciences from 2014-17 and in 2015 was appointed to the United Kingdom Spine Societies Board.
