I am currently honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer in Anaesthetics in Oxford, where I have worked as an anaesthetist for 32 years.
My first contact with the developing world was as a student in Nepal, where I subsequently also worked after completing anaesthesia exams. In Oxford I am associated with the course on Anaesthesia in Developing Countries, of which I was director for 30 years, and have been involved in PTC since its inception.
I have had the pleasure and privilege of teaching PTC courses and instructor courses all over the world (often in association with my wife Shirley), and have also worked with the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesia, and the World Health Organisation.
We have 3 sons, 3 lovely daughters-in-law, and (currently) 3 gorgeous grandchildren!
This award recognises that the individual has organised at least 4 PTC Course cascades and has trained at least 10 instructors.
