Personal Details

Harry was raised and educated in Berkshire attending Wellington College. He is married to a doctor turned artist and has two daughters neither of whom have any interest in medicine! Outside of work he enjoys walking his dog, bird watching, sailing, crosswords, cycling and spending time in Devon.


The school’s career advice was that Harry should follow the family tradition of joining the army but instead he attended Manchester Medical School in 1984. He took an extra intercalated degree in basic anatomy before graduating from medical school in 1990 with a prestigious honours degree. He had his eyes opened experiencing life as a junior doctor working in north Wales and central Manchester hospitals.

Harry’s higher specialist training occurred in Oxford where he was appointed as a clinical lecturer in orthopaedics at the University of Oxford. This meant not only training to become an orthopaedic surgeon but also having the opportunity to complete research into fracture healing and to be responsible for teaching orthopaedics to medical students and junior doctors. By the time he had finished in Oxford he had gained an MD and had received an award for the highest mark in the national orthopaedic exams.

Specialist Fellowship Training

Harry gained 3 fellowships over 2 years in shoulder and elbow surgery in Oxford, Sydney and Reading. During this time he cemented his academic knowledge and basic science research together with practical hands-on experience to become an accomplished open and arthroscopic shoulder and elbow surgeon. He gained experience in all aspects of this broad specialty including complex keyhole surgery, joint replacements, and trauma management.  But most importantly he also learnt that most shoulder and elbow problems can be treated without an operation and that an honest discussion about the variety of treatment options is key.
