Liverpool Clinical Laboratories Consultant Medical Microbiologist July 2013-March 2015 (retired) &Control of Infection Doctor

Aintree Hospitals NHS Trust Consultant Medical Microbiologist May 1987-July 2013 Control of Infection Doctor

I retired (March 2015) as a Consultant Medical Microbiologist responsible for giving a clinical microbiology service for patients of University Hospital Aintree which has most specialties served by 926 acute beds, the
Walton Centre Foundation Trust (for Neurology & Neurosurgery (160 beds) and local General Practitioners. I also supported the needs of Health Protection England particularly in community based outbreak investigations
e.g. food poisoning.

The laboratory is a former regional Public Health Laboratory which has been managed by Aintree Hospitals NHS Trust since April 2003 and now part of Liverpool Clinical Laboratories which is a joint venture between
Aintree Hospitals and the Royal Liverpool Hospital. This large joint laboratory has a workload of more than 120000 bacteriology and 170000 Virology specimens with the bacteriology specimens derived from Primary
Care and local hospital trusts The Virology derives from Merseyside and parts of Cheshire. I have been mostly involved in giving advice on bacteriological infections and hospital infection control but also support
the needs of the Virology part of our service as appropriate. The laboratory provides a comprehensive rapid tuberculosis isolation service for many laboratories in the North West and again I give appropriate medical
advice as required. I served as head of the Clinical Microbiology & Health Protection Agency Collaborating Laboratory since July 2003 until July 2012.
