Stephen Ford

My current role

I work with the multidisciplinary team on the John Farman ICU looking after critically ill adults, and in theatres providing anaesthesia for patients undergoing a variety of surgical procedures - usually major gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary or gynaecological surgery.

I am also the faculty tutor for Intensive Care Medicine meaning I have responsibility for training junior doctors from a variety of backgrounds in the management of critically ill patients. I am also the lead consultant for junior recruitment to the JVF-ICU - often in conjunction with my colleagues from NCCU.

Previous history

I graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2002 and undertook my pre-registration posts at the Royal Liverpool Hospital, before moving to Cambridge for a medical SHO rotation. It was on the old JVF-ICU in 2004 that I developed my enthusiasm for intensive care.

After Cambridge I trained in anaesthetics in London at the Royal London Hospital, Barts, the Royal Free and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

I spread my Intensive Care training between the Royal London Hospital and Addenbrooke's, and undertook a critical care education fellowship at the Royal London before taking my consultancy in 2014.

Memberships and accreditations

I'm a member of the Intensive Care Society, and a fellow of the Royal College of Anaesthetists and the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine.
