DR SHEENA HUBBLE

Sheena Hubble

Dr Sheena Hubble (MRCP FRCA DICM) qualified in 1993 and trained mainly in the Southwest including Bristol, Birmingham, and Plymouth before taking up a consultant role in the intensive care unit at the Royal Devon and Exeter hospital in 2003. She is jointly accredited in anesthesia, medicine, and intensive care. In April 2017 she was invited to pilot the first full-time peri-operative consultant role covering acute surgical patients in the RDE and is currently working to develop the service with links to pre-operative assessment, care of the elderly, and ITU outreach. The Exeter post-operative medical service (Ex-POM) has grown to a multi-disciplinary team of 12, with plans to employ further full-time consultants as well as additional dedicated allied medical specialists. The aims are to provide more comprehensive assessments, improved multi-disciplinary care, and proactive discharge planning to the higher risk and elderly surgical patient.
Her interests are perioperative medicine, management of “silver” trauma, lactate, and microcirculation. She lives with her husband and four children in Devon.
