ADMINISTRATIVE EXPERIENCE
As a consultant, I am managing day to day activities of my unit. We are working hard as
a team to reduce the operating and out-patient waiting time in the Hip and Knee unit of
the department. I am interested in trauma management.

National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD): I am the lead clinician in my hospital for
NHFD. I chair the fracture neck of femur user group meeting.

DVT prophylaxis: I am a member of the trust DVT prophylaxis committee.

Truama implant trial: I am chairing this project. We are trying to streamline the trauma
implants use in the department.

Orthopaedic handbook for junior trainees: I have written a handbook for junior
trainees.

Chairman’s award: I was a member of Chairman’s award committee in the Royal
Berkshire Hospital from 2002 to June 2005. We invited the trust staff to apply for their
excellent work. The committee used to meet every 4 months. The best two candidates and
teams were selected and awarded.

Rotary Club of Maiden Erleigh: I am a member of the Rotary Club of Reading Maiden
Erleigh. We were involved in many charities nationally and internationally. Due to my
heavy clinical and career commitments I have taken a leave for one calendar year. I
intend to be active again in the club once I have an established permanent post.
I have done the usual jobs of organising SpR and SHO rotas in previous hospitals
