Lee is a Clinical Day Facilitator who started working for us in 2021. Lee also works as a consultant in emergency and acute medicine at Lancashire Teaching Hospital NHS Trust. He has taught medical students and junior doctors for many years. He now spends some of his time working for us.
Lee works for us one day a week. He is involved with Phase 2 studies where he is currently teaching the surgery module to third-year students. He is also involved with delivering the professionalism component of the syllabus and works as a student Academic Advisor. Lee also works as a full-time consultant in the NHS where he specialises in emergency and acute medicine. Lee also has a special interest in clinical governance, ambulatory care and working for the Parliamentary House Service Ombudsman (PSHO). Lee is also heavily involved in the recruitment and development of Advance Clinical Practitioners in emergency and acute medicine.
Lee graduated from the University of St Andrews in 1996 with a BSc in Biomedical Science. He went on to complete his medical degree from Manchester University in 1999. Lee started his medical career working at Blackpool Victoria Hospital. This was before embarking on a journey through medicine, surgery, paediatrics, anaesthetics and emergency medicine. All culminated in an emergency medicine training program in the northwest. Lee also spent several years responding for MedAlert, the northwest pre-hospital medical emergency response group.
As a trainee, Lee decided to sub-specialise in acute medicine. Thus he spent a year working as a senior trainee in the Acute Medical Unit at East Lancashire Teaching Hospital NHS Trust. It followed that Lee was then employed as a consultant at Lancashire Teaching Hospital NHS Trust where he remains.
Lee has taught within the hospital environment for many years. He is trained as a PBL facilitator and acts as a faculty instructor on many of the advanced resuscitation courses. Lee now also works for us as a Clinical Day Facilitator contributing to the delivery of Phase 2 studies. Lee has also helped support EMpulse, the university's emergency medicine training society.
