My interest in Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) conditions stems from completion of ENT specialty training. Following this I made a career change to General Practice (GP) training where I recognized the scarcity of specific ENT training in the training of GPs. 

In particular I recognized the medical aspects of ENT complaints such as tinnitus seemed to be sidelined both in GP training and ENT training. This led to the opportunity to be GP ENT educator for GP trainees in Northern Ireland as well as adviser on the NICE Tinnitus Guidelines.

I am passionate about GPs being better informed about tinnitus and in new ways to manage and help those with tinnitus live a full life.
