Specialty Trainee in General Surgery I am currently working at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust on a 1-year rotation in breast surgery as a registrar. I have aspirations to become an academic colorectal surgeon. I was an academic clinical fellow in general surgery. I have been accredited by the Academy of Medical Educators. I was awarded the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board prize for the best foundation doctor in 2015: http://www.wales.nhs.uk/sitesplus/863/news/38154. I won the compassion, kindness and care award at Chesterfield Royal Hospital in 2020: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHwmbz1PKZc (02:43 – 04:21). I have an interest in medical education, management and leadership and I hope to build these skills throughout my post this year to enhance my awareness and my appreciation so that I may have a stronger effect within the National Health Service for my patients.
