His postgraduate training was at Guy’s Hospital London as well as other regional hospitals.  This included visits to Seattle where Brachytherapy Prostate treatment was pioneered at the Seattle Prostate Institute and over two years at Guys Hospital learning laser, robotic and laparoscopic surgery for kidney and prostate problems.  He is currently the clinical lead for urology at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust.
