Guy qualified as an Operating Department Practitioner (ODP) in 1996. His clinical experience includes employment at Auckland Public Hospital in New Zealand as an Anaesthetic Technician in the liver transplant unit, as a clinical leader in the elective orthopaedic theatre at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary and as a Clinical Skills educator also. He was employed as a part-time lecturer in 2010 and became a full-time lecturer at UCLAN in 2015. His main interests are the teaching of anatomy and physiology and pathophysiology. To facilitate teaching of these topics, he applies his clinical experiences as an ODP. This ensures that students experience teaching that has high applicability to their own practice and clinical experiences. Guy also has an interest in Human Factors in surgery and anaesthesia and conducted a research interview study that explored the factors that affect the use of Human Factors by scrub practitioners during surgery. He has several articles published on this topic.
