State of the Art 2019


I am a Consultant Neurosurgeon and Pre-Hospital Care Specialist working at both Imperial College (mainly St Mary’s Major Trauma Centre) and as an Air Ambulance doctor.

I am a Clinical Professor specialising in Brain Injury at Imperial and Honorary Professor of Pre-Hospital Care (the Gibson Chair) at the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care, Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.

My specialist areas are acute brain injury (mostly traumatic brain injury) and its very early management. I am co-director of the Imperial Neurotrauma Centre.

I am co-founder of GoodSAM, a revolutionary platform that alerts doctors, nurses, paramedic and those trained in basic life support to emergencies around them.

I have worked extensively overseas (India, Nepal, South Africa, as a GP in Australia, Researcher for NASA and as an expedition doctor on Arctic and Everest expeditions). I wrote The Medics Guide to Work and Electives Around the World.

My research is mainly into the brain in trauma and in hypoxia (using it as an injury model) in humans.
